President To Retire 
After Sixteen Years 

by Paul Pickard 

"The board of trustees has approved my request to retire as president 
of the college effective on or before June 30, 1967." Dr. Frederic K. 
Miller made this announcement at a special faculty meeting held on Janu- 
ary 3, to members of the college staff and two student representatives, 
Bradley Rentzel and Paul Pickard. 

Dr. Miller was chosen president in 1951. "It was a job," he said, "I 
really did not want." Nevertheless, he has served tirelessly in that capa- 
city for the past sixteen years. Those years were spent, not only as presi- 
dent of the college, but as an officer in many public service organizations. 
He was chairman of the board of the Lebanon YMCA, and the Good 
Samaritan Hospital. He was also active in the Cancer Society and the 
Heart Association. 

"My Roots at This Place are 
Pretty Deep." 

President Miller went on to describe 
the years of affiliation his family has had 
with the college. His father, class of 
1899, was elected to the board of trustees 
in 1904, and both he and his brother were 
graduated from Lebanon Valley. With 
this in mind, Dr. Miller pointed out, "My 
roots at this place are pretty deep." He 
recalled for those present that his first 
job at the college was as a history teacher 
in the summer of 1931. 

Professor to President 

Since 1931, Dr. Miller has risen from a 
teacher of history to president of the col- 
lege. After thirty-six years of service to 
the school, President Miller stated that 
his basic reason for retiring was because 
he was tired. He went on to explain, 
"There are challenging years ahead, and 
a younger man should lead the school 

Dr. Miller told the faculty that he 
would likely find some other position af- 
ter leaving the college, but that he would 
not accept the presidency of any other 
college were he offered it. 

ETS Announces Dates 
For Senior Examinations 

College seniors preparing to teach 
school may take the National Teacher 
Examination on any of the three different 
test dates announced by the Educational 
Testing Service. New dates are March 18, 
July 1, and October 7, 1967. 

Results of the National Teacher Ex- 
aminations are used by many large school 
districts as one of several factors in the 
selection of new teachers and by several 
states for certification or licensing of 

Leaflets indicating school systems and 
state departments of education which use 
the examination results are distributed to 
colleges by ETS. 

On each full day of testing, prospective 
teachers may take the Common Examina- 
tions, which measure the professional 
Preparation and general cultural back- 
ground of teachers, and one of 13 Teach- 
lr ig Area Examinations which measure 
Mastery of the subject they expect to 

Prospective teachers should contact 
the school systems in which they seek 
e rnployment, or their colleges, for specific 
a dvice on which examinations to take and 
° n which dates they should be taken. 

A Bulletin of Information containing a 
list of test centers, and information about 
l he examinations, as well as a Registra- 
tlo n Form, may be obtained from college 
Placement officers, school personnel de- 
partments, or directly from National 
Teacher Examinations, Box 911, Educa- 
tional Testing Service, Princeton, New 
Jersey 08540. 

World Watcher 

Sierra Leone: Sierra Leone has made 
a gift of four road oil tankers to the 
Zambian Government. The presentation 
was made in London recently by the Act- 
ing High Commissioner, Dr. A. M. 
Kamanda to the Zambian High Com- 
missioner, Mr. S. Katilungu. 

In accepting the gift on behalf of his 
government, Mr. Katilungu said it was 
the first real practical measure of sup- 
port they received from their Common- 
wealth sisters. 

The gift was meant to assist Zambia 
tackle the transportation difficulties posed 
by the Rhodesian situation. 

Washington, D.C.: President Johnson, 
on January 5, 1967, signed an executive 
order cutting off virtually all trade be- 
tween the United States and Rhodesia. 
Finland, Britain, Mexico and New Zeal- 
and have already imposed economic sanc- 
tions on Rhodesia. 

India: Indian national elections are 
due to take place by mid-February. It is 
believed that the Hindu revivalist parties 
(against cow-slaughtering in India) will 
be a majoring threat, as they are now, to 
Prime Minister Ghandi's government. 

Nigeria: Top level Nigerian Govern- 
ment officials met at Peduasi Lodge, 
Oburi Hills, Accra (former President 
Kwame Nkrumah's weekend retreat), dur- 
ing the first two days of the New Year 
to attempt a settlement of the Nigerian 
crisis. Informed sources are of the opinion 
that the meeting — particularly on neutral 
ground — was a step in the right direction, 
and that a settlement could be expected 

Brazil: Brazil's right-wing military 
government moved ahead, on December 
30 last, to impose a tough law that would 
curtail news coverage and dissemination. 
A spokesman for General Humberto 
Casterro Branco has announced that no 
changes will be made in the proposed 
law despite opposition to it from Brazil- 
ian public figures including journalists. 
One section of the law abolishes jury trials 
for those the government considers re- 
sponsible for illegal journalism! 

West Germany: West German Chan- 
cellor Kurt Kiesinger has been studying 
the possibility of establishing an East- 
West German trade commission. No move 
would be made to recognize East Ger- 
many, he said last December 30. He urges 
further cooperation between France and 
Germany despite differences over NATO! 

United Nations: Evzen Vacek, a for- 
mer member of the Czech UN mission 
and now employed by the United Nations 
Secretariat is about to be dismissed from 
his post and expelled from the U. S. for 
spying. The wonder of this incident is that 
the U.S. State Department and top U.N. 
officials are said to have maintained 
strong secrecy over the issue, and there 
has been no talk of a court action against 

EXAMS ARE HERE AGAIN. — As usual an indefinable spirit has draped the 
campus and its inhabitants with a pall of anxiety, worry, cramming, and exhaustion. 
With the tension mounting, students do many ridiculous things to relieve the tension 
and pressure. We have been told by our professors to study as we go instead of 
cramming at the last minute, but we seem to adopt the attitude of — SO WHAT — 
throughout the semester when other more interesting things come up. Now we have 
to pay.

Sinfonia To Give 
February Concert 
Of Chamber Music 

On Thursday evening, February 2, Iota 
Kappa Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia 
will present a concert of chamber music. 
The first such recital in several years, 
the concert is being offered by Sinfonia 
as a means of acquainting the student 
body with this important type of music. 

Chamber music is music designed for 
a small group of instrumentalists and 
was originally composed only for private 
performance. It received its greatest de- 
velopment in the Eighteenth Century 
and has contributed much by means of 
exper i mentation. 

The program will include selections by 
brass, woodwinds, and strings, and choral 
selections. A brass quartet will play 
Gabriel's Four Canzoni for Brass Quintet 
and Mussorgsky's Capriccio for Brass 
Quartet. String Quartet No. 13 in D 
minor by Beethoven will be performed 
by the string group. The woodwinds will 
perform Presto for Woodwind Quintet, 
Haydn; Kleiner Kammer Musik, Hinde- 
muth; and Concerto for Woodwind Quin- 
tet, Jorgen. 

The concert is being directed by David 
Keehn and Paul Seland. It will be held in 
Engle Hall at 8 p.m. 

Lebanon Valley's chapter of Phi Mu 
Alpha Sinfonia initiated five new mem- 
bers in December. Inducted were Jim 
Kain, Lloyd Jacobs, Terry Gehman, Ron 
Heck, and Jeff Conway. The new mem- 
bers have already helped Sinfonia in the 
musical production and presented a 
pledge recital. 

In other areas, the jazz band has been 
preparing for its February 10 concert. 
The band is under the direction of Rip 
Posten. Jack Schwalm is serving as co- 
ordinator and manager for the concert.

A Man and Time 

During the next few months, this college will be faced with the task 
of finding a suitable successor to President Frederic K. Miller, who is 
retiring in June. College presidents are not easy to find, good ones are 
even scarcer, and men of the caliber of Frederic K. Miller often pass by, 
because they, like he, do not really want the job. 

Nevertheless, the college that is fortunate enough to convince a man 
like Dr. Miller that he should become president of the institution will reap 
the benefits long after he is gone. Indeed, for the past sixteen years, 
Lebanon Valley College has reaped the benefits of having Dr. Miller as its 

Seven buildings have been constructed in the past nine years, and 
others have been remodeled. Dozens of grants have been awarded to the 
college, and several important revisions in the curriculum have been made. 
The inception of the college Honors Program, the Independent Study 
Program, and the Calendar Revision Committee — these, and many more 
like them, are testimony to President Miller's tireless work to improve the 

This college owes a great debt to Dr. Miller. For, not only did he deal 
with present situations in all his programs, but he also kept an alert eye on 
what effect these programs might have in the future. It was through his 
farsighted, deliberate guidance that Lebanon Valley was able to make the 
transition from a good college to a superior one. 

Although sixteen years seems a long time to President Miller, it is 
only a short time in the history of the college. The things this man has 
accomplished in the relatively short span of sixteen years, many could 
never hope to begin. 

This is not to say that Dr. Miller was able to do all this by himself — 
one could not. He was indeed fortunate to have had a staff and a board of 
trustees who were willing to move forward with him. Although they did 
not always agree which way was forward, a compromise was almost always 
forthcoming for the good of the college. 

* * * 

But, there is another side to this man. There is the side of an admin- 
istrator who was always deeply concerned with faculty-student "communi- 
cations," a man who, in this age of rushing from one place to another, 
always found time to laugh, and always found time to offer some word of 
greeting to everyone he met. 

The retirement of President Miller will be a great loss to the students, 
staff, and board of trustees of this college. But, looking back at all that he 
has been able to do for this college during his thirty-six years as a pro- 
fessor and an administrator, it is not too difficult to see that Dr. Miller 
might well be tired and more than deserving of a rest. Our hope for the 
future of this institution rests in the belief that a suitable successor for 
President Miller can and will be found to lead the college forward in the 
coming years. 

Dr. Miller should look back at what he has done for the college 
during his administration with nothing less than pride. The progress he 
has been able to effect as president will serve as a constant reminder to the 
students and faculty of the college that at least once during the history of 
Lebanon Valley College, a truly great man served as its leader — Frederic 
K. Miller, President, 1951-1967. —P.P.

To the Editor: 

In January of 1966 the Eastern sea- 
board was inundated by one of the worst 
blizzards in years. In this area it re- 
quired two days to clear the main 
throughways and three to six days to re- 
open secondary roads. During this per- 
iod everything was at a standstill. Yet, 
according to the recently announced class 
attendance policy, no excused absences 
could have been granted to snowbound 
commuters. The only choice open to a 
commuter, especially one with several 
cuts already, would be to strap garbage 
can lids to his feet and struggle six to ten 
miles through waist-deep snow. 

If several feet of wind-driven snow is 
not a "compelling personal reason" for 
missing classes, then neither is a frac- 
tured skull and two broken legs! 

Or what about the hapless commuter 
who gets into his car at 7:30 in order 
to make an eight o'clock class, and his 
car won't start? There is no way that 
he can get to that eight o'clock class, but 
so what? It's not a "compelling personal 
reason." (Now of course this example is 
atypical, simply because any commuter 
who wishes to find a parking space within 
five blocks of the campus must leave 
home by six o'clock.) 

Any set of rules should allow flexibility 
in case of emergency. The class attend- 
ance policy, as announced, does not. In 
fact, it specifically states that no flex- 
ibility is to be allowed in the cases of two 
of the most common and frustrating com- 
muter emergencies. Consider the female 
commuter .staring helplessly at the flat 
tire on her Ford; the rural commuter 
with his car stuck, or even wrecked, in an 
attempt to plow through the snow; or, for 
that matter, anyone else for whom trans- 
portation has suddenly grown from a 
problem to an impossibility: will these 
persons have a warm sense of satisfac- 
tion and appreciation when they think of 
how the college understands their situa-

Dear Editor: 

What is a collegiate student? We must 
first look at the meaning of the word 
collegiate. Collegiate is defined as, that 
of or pertaining to college. According to 
this, all students in a college are col- 
legiate, or are they? In the early 1930's 
the word collegiate took upon itself a new 
connotation. The connotation was one not 
of the mere presence or attendance of a 
college, but of participation in college 
activities. By participating one uses his 


The Great Peace 

by Ade Hedd 

In the issue of La Vie Collegienne for September 29 last, I tried to 
spell out the difficulties attending the peaceful solution of the Vietnam 
dilemma. In this present issue, I intend to project the subject a little 
further in the hope that we can begin to envisage a solution to the con- 
flict — and possibly, the future of the two Vietnams. 

As holiday truces approached in Vietnam shortly before Christmas, 
there was no substantial slackening in the tempo of fighting nor any slow- 
down in the build-up of forces by both sides. Advance elements of yet 
another American unit, the 9th Infantry Division, arrived at the South 
Vietnamese port of Vung Tau to join the 370,000 Americans already 
under arms in Southeast Asia. Australia announced that 900 more infan- 
trymen, 8 Canberra medium-range bombers, and the guided-missile de- 
stroyer, Hobarf, would soon be sent to Vietnam, strengthening the Aus- 
tralian contingent from 4,500 to 6,300. New Zealand hinted at reinforce- 
ments for its artillery battery serving in South Vietnam. 

North Korea has actively joined in on the Communist side. United 
States officials at the Pentagon are of the opinion that the North Koreans, 
who have had experience flying Russian designed MIG jets, are helping 
to train North Vietnamese pilots in the MIGs. The Pentagon is also of the 
opinion that no foreign Communists have been directly involved in combat 
in Vietnam. The Russians have acknowledged sending missile technicians 
to Hanoi, and 40,000 Red Chinese laborers were helping repair damaged 
North Vietnamese communication lines. 

But American officials say they cannot 
be positive about who is actually firing 
Russian-made surface-to-air (SAM) mis- 
siles at American planes or who is flying 
the planes bearing North Vietnamese 
markings! Meanwhile, North Vietnam 
continues to trumpet its accusation of 
American raids over Hanoi. The Penta- 
gon, though, has again asserted that they 
have no evidence that American planes 
have bombed Hanoi, suggesting that any 
damage to that city might have been 
caused by misfired North Vietnamese 
missiles! Although they cannot rule out 
the possibility of accidents, in any case, 
they regret any incident of bombs falling 
on Hanoi. 

However, Washington has appealed to 
United Nations Secretary General U. 
Thant, who had said he was "deeply con- 
cerned" over "intensifications" of U.S. 
bombings, to "take whatever steps" he 

thought necessary to arrange talks on a 
Vietnam cease-fire. At the same time, 
Mr. Abdul Rahman Pazhwak of Pakis- 
tan, who was president of the 21st session 
of the United Nations General Assembly, 
urged all parties in the Vietnam War to 
declare their unconditional willingness to 
enter into peace talks. But the Russians 
have sniffed at these appeals as "just an- 
other propaganda maneuver;" the Viet 
Cong, North Vietnamese, and Red Chi- 
nese also denounced the idea in harsher 

Classical guerilla pattern: 

Since early December last year, there 
has been a flurry of discouraged reports 
from Saigon that the enemy is "going 
back to Phase II" — which means pulling 
back and digging in for an indefinitely 
prolonged war in the classical guerilla

knowledge. Keeping this in mind, let us 
look at LVC. 

There are on this campus only a small 
group of "collegiate" students. I am still 
striving to become one according to the 
modern connotation. The "Collegiate" 
group are those who not only frequent the 
few activities we do have, but also make 
a considerable contribution to the col- 
lege. They do this by presenting them- 
selves as individuals instead of masses of 
living flesh that move from class to class 
then retire to their dorms. 

Far too often we consider college as 
eight semesters' exams. I do not advo- 
cate a policy of academic neglect or 
laziness, for we must have a basis upon 
which we can express ourselves. Attend- 
ing college is a four year learning exper- 
ience. The greatest lesson to be learned 
is that of social co-existence. One could 
know every fact of chemistry, but if he 
were not able to express himself, of what 
value is his vast accumulation of know- 

There seems to be only one solution 
in becoming "collegiate" students. This 
is to put aside useless griping about LVC 
activities, social or otherwise, get off your 
posterior and do something about it. This 
article is meant to affect those people 
who are not "collegiate." If it offends 
you, stop and take stock of yourself.

Campui Scene 

Dear Registrar: 

I have a slight problem with my exam 
schedule for the first semester. 

The first tentative exam schedule look- 
ed really terrific. I had my biology 33 
exam on Thursday at 8:30, psychology 28 
on Friday at 1:30, my chemistry 35 on 
Monday at 8:30, my geography 21 at 
1:30, and my economics 47 on Tuesday 
at 8:30. 

Now, I know we can't always have 
what we want so I kind of expected a 
few changes when the second schedule 
appeared. This time biology was on Fri- 
day at 1:30, so psychology had to be 
changed. I was a little shook when you 
changed it to Saturday at 8:30, but I 
figured I'd still have Sunday to rest up for 
the other three. 

As I read further though, you had 
made a few more changes I hadn't ex- 
pected. Chemistry was changed to Tues- 
day at 8:30, and so was geography. Of 
course, that meant changing economics to 
another day, but why Wednesday at 1:30? 

I could hardly wait for the third sched- 
ule to be posted. I was really happy to see 
that my Tuesday conflicts were elim- 
inated. This time I had psychology on the 
first Monday at 1:30. But, my poor bio- 
logy course, which never hurt anybody, 
was dropped from the schedule. Then I 
had chemistry and economics on Saturday 
at 1:30, and geography on Wednesday at 

I was afraid to see another exam 
schedule after the last one, but I finally 
broke down and reported the conflict. I 
wasn't sure what you meant when you said 
that I should wear sneakers. Were you

Opened in June 1957, Gossard Memorial Library now 
contains over 83,000 volumes, including reference books 
and a diversified collection of periodicals. Special equipment 
in the library includes music and listening rooms, microfilm 
readers and an audiovisual room. 

President Miller speaks at the dedication of Vickroy Hall, 
opened to residents in 1961. It houses over 120 girls in com- 
fortable rooms, each with its own individually controlled 
heating unit. Vickroy gives the girls most of the conveni- 
ences of home living with a kitchen, lounges and laundry 

The Chapel, dedicated in May, 1966, provides the campus 
with its long dreamed of sanctuary and with a seating capa- 
city large enough to hold the student body. The Chapel also 
houses a lecture room, classroom, offices, meeting rooms and 
a meditation chapel.

The Lebanon Valley Dining Hall was built in 1957-58. 
Its modern facilities with a seating capacity of approximately 
five hundred replaced the old facilities in the basement of 
the old Keister Hall. The Dining Hall, in addition to serving 
the resident students twenty-one meals a week, serves many 
visitors to the campus at numerous banquets throughout 
the year. 

Hammond Hall, the second of the two new dormitories 
for men, was opened in the fall of 1965 and also houses 85 
men. Hammond is the home of the brothers of Philo and

Frederic Miller's Presidency 

Improves College Programs 

by Sue Sitko 

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of Lebanon Valley College for the last sixteen years, will retire on or 
before June 30. Dr. Miller's exact departure date will depend upon the naming of a successor. 

Dr. Miller was elected to the presidency on June 1, 1951. His election followed a year in which he served 
as acting president after the death of Rev. Dr. Clyde A. Lynch in August, 1950. The retiring president is the 
twelfth chief executive of Lebanon Valley College which is currently celebrating its Centennial year. 

Educated in the Lebanon school system, the recipient of a Lebanon Valley College degree in 1929, a 
Master of Arts in 1931, a Ph.D. in 1948 from the University of Pennsylvania, and an honorary Doctor of 
Letters degree from Muhlenberg in 1954, Dr. Miller has made wide inroads through his service to the com- 
munity and to the College. While zealously active beyond the confines of the campus, Dr. Miller's first love 
and his consuming passion has been his Alma Mater. 

In 1939, Dr. Miller was named chairman of the history department at Lebanon Valley, holding this posi- 
tion through 1950 except for a period of military service from 1943 to 1945. From 1948 to 1950 he also 
served as assistant to the president of the College. Then came his ascendancy to the presidency. 

Having inherited the responsibility of leading the institution after many years of crises — the depression, 
the war, the postwar years — he set about to fulfill his dream of making Lebanon Valley College one of which 
her forefathers, her alumni, her students, and her community would be increasingly proud. 

The student body of 1951 numbered 520; now it numbers 835. Not only has there been an increase in 
quantity, but the quality, the spirit of adventure, an all-encompassing desire for '-the good of the college" now 
pervade the campus. 

Fund Drives and Expansion 
Money is one key to the development 
of a healthy on-going institution. During 
Dr. Miller's regime two major fund drives 
were initiated and brought to successful 
conclusions. In 1955-56, the college 
raised $1,090,000, well above the original 
goal of $900,000.' In the three years just 
passed, Lebanon Valley's Centennial Fund 
Campaign reached the $1,600,000 mark 
through the combined efforts of church, 
alumni, business, and friends. 

The latter campaign was designed to 
enable the college to build its own chapel 
and to make necessary improvements in 
the existing Lynch Memorial Building. 
On October 30, 1966, the new College 
Chapel was dedicated, bringing to a con- 
clusion a long-standing dream and hope 
of Dr. Miller. The Lynch Memorial 
Building's gymnasium was completely air- 
conditioned, and was furnished with 
brand new lighting and heating systems 
as well as an acoustically tiled ceiling. 

These two are just the last in a long 
line of new and altered structures on the 

During the last 16 years, an additional 
seven academic and living accommoda- 
tion buildings have been added to the 
physical plant. 

In May, 1957, dedicatory exercises were 
held for the Gossard Memorial Library, 

for the science building, and for Mary 
Capp Green Residence Hall for women 

A new College Dining. Hall was dedi- 
cated in 1958; and another residence for 
women, Vickroy Hall, opened in 1961. 
Two men's residences, Hammond and 
Keister Halls, were officially dedicated 
in October, 1965. 

Academic Improvements 

In the academic area, vast changes 
have been engendered by Dr. Miller's 
constant concern. Intellectual excitement, 
freedom and productivity have reached 
new heights. Classes are smaller, students 
are assured of a greater voice in college 
matters, and the faculty and administra- 
tion enjoy a personal status much beyond 
that of nearly two decades ago. 

Honors Programs and Independent 
Study Plans have been introduced, tail- 
ored to the upswing in quality of the stu- 
dents now entering the college. Further 
calendar changes to use more wisely the 
academic year are under consideration. 

Retirement and the Future 

In his request for retirement, Dr. Mil- 
ler indicated his philosophy that "both 
individuals and institutions have their cy- 
cles, and I am convinced that this belief 
has special application at this time to 

both Lebanon Valley College and to me 

"Institutions arrive at stages of devel- 
opment when new leadership is called 
for. In guiding the destinies of Lebanon 
Valley College for sixteen years, through 
the Centennial and through the dedication 
of the Chapel, I feel that the college has 
reached a stage in its development when 
the second century of service now about 
to open offers tremendous potential that 
can best be realized by a change in top 
administration," he added. 

... "J am .confident that the faculty, the 
students, the alumni, the Church constitu- 
ents, and the local community will con- 
tinue to manifest increased interest and 
concern in the future development of 
the College. 

"I am deeply appreciative of the coop- 
eration I have had from everyone during 
my sixteen years as president of Lebanon 
Valley," Dr. Miller concluded. 

In view that it takes a lot to teach a 
little, we — alumni, administration, and 
students — are also deeply appreciative of 
Dr. Miller's sixteen years of leadership. 
How well he succeeded can be seen in 
bricks and mortar — felt in our hearts and 
spirit — and will germinate indefinitely in 
our dreams and aspirations. 

Dr. Miller Effects 
Many Innovations 
Within Curriculum 

One of the most important additions to 
the college curriculum during Dr. Miller's 
administration as president of Lebanon 
Valley College has been the initiation of 
the Honor's Program and Independent 

This program grew out of the Depart- 
mental Honors Program which was begun 
by the Department of Mathematics in 
1954, followed by the Department of 
Chemistry in 1955. 

In 1961 the program was begun with 
the following objectives in mind: (1) to 
provide an opportunity for intellectually 
able students to develop their abilities to 
the fullest extent, (2) to recognize and 
encourage superior academic achieve- 
ments and (3) to stimulate all members 
of the college family to greater interest 
and activity in the intellectual concerns 
of college life. 

The first phase of the program in- 
cludes becoming a member of Honors 
sections in certain general college courses, 
usually in the freshmen and sophomore 
years, and the second phase entails In- 
dependent Study in a chosen field during 
the junior and senior years. 

The two phases are related to one an- 
other through a- series of Honors Col- 
loqaia and evening sessions combining 
academic and social activities. ^ 

Appropriate recognition is given to' 
those students who complete either or 
both phases of the College Honors Pro- 

There have been several other im- 
portant changes in the curriculum which 
took effect the fall semester of 1960. The 
credits necessary for graduation were re- 
duced from 130 to 120 plus physical 
education, thereby reducing semester 
hours from 17 to 15 hours per semester. 
The number of hours of general college 
requirements was reduced from 55 to 42 
hours and minors no longer were re- 
quired. It was also ruled that no general 
requirements could count toward a major. 

LVC Faculty Members 
Attend Holiday Meetings 

Dr. Ralph S. Shay presented a paper 
on "Chinese Language and Culture in a 
Liberal Arts College" at the annual meet- 
ing of the Chinese Language Teachers 
Association in New York City at the At- 
lantic Hotel on Friday, December 30. 

Professor Shay's paper was one of four 
read at a session under the general theme 
of "The Role of Chinese Language Teach- 
ing in Relation to Other Disciplines." Fol- 
lowing the presentation of their papers, 
Dr. Shay and the other three instructors 
constituted a panel. Professor Shay has 
been closely associated in the activities of 
the American Association of Teachers of 
Chinese Language and Culture. 
' Several faculty members attended the 
national Modern Language Association 
conference at the Statler Hilton in New 
York from December 27-29. 

Representing the English department 
were Dr. Struble, Dr. Ford and Mr. 
Woods. Members of the Foreign Lan- 
guage department attending were Dr. Tit- 
comb, Mile. Souchet, Dr. Damus, and 
Captain Cooper. 

The American Association of Teachers 
of French was attended by Dr. Titcomb, 
Captain Cooper and Dr. Struble. 

Conference To Present 
Hess, Bissinger Paper 

Dr. Hess and Dr. Bissinger have re- 
cently received word from the Internation- 
al Biometric Conference that their paper 
"Diurnal Cycles of Shark Metabolism as 
Measured by Serum Glucose Levels" has 
been accepted for presentation at the 6th 
annual meeting August, 1967, in Sydney, 

Data was collected from experiments 
with live sharks which they caught this 
past summer in Lower Delaware Bay at 
the Marine Laboratories of the Univer- 
sity of Delaware. 

Lebanon Valley Erects 
Seven New Buildings 
In Past Decade 

by Bonnie Baker 

During the sixteen years in which Dr. 
Frederic Miller has served as president of 
Lebanon Valley College, there has been 
an extensive building program on campus. 
Seven buildings were erected, and others 
were purchased. 

Three buildings were dedicated in May, 
1957: the George Daniel Gossard Mem- 
orial Library, the Science Hall, and Mary 
Capp Green Residence Hall for women. 
Gossard Memorial Library and Mary 
Capp Green Residence Hall were built, 
while the Science Hall was acquired by 
the college and renovated. 

The Dining Hall, constructed in 1957- 
58, was put into use the fall of 1958 and 
dedicated that s$me year. 

In 1961, Vickroy Residence Hall for 
women students was dedicated enabling 
another increase in the number of women 
resident students enrolled. 

The new Keister and Hammond Halls, 
both men's resident halls, were dedicated 
during 1965, and are now used for most 
sophomore, junior, and senior men. 

The most recent addition under the 
direction of Dr. Miller was the Chapel, 
dedicated October 30, 1966. This beauti- 
fully constructed building houses not only 
a chapel and meditation room, but also a 
lecture hall, classrooms, and professors' 

At present, plans for a student union 
building connected to the college dining 
hall are under consideration. 

Musicians Present 
LVC Band Clinic 

More than two hundred visitors and 
students attended the eighth annual band 
clinic on Saturday, January 7, 1967, in 
Lynch Memorial gymnasium from 8 a.m. 
to 4 p.m. 

The program was begun with a two 
hour sight reading clinic by the Lebanon 
Valley ; concert band under the . direction 
of Dr. James M. Thurmond, the faculty 
member of this clinic. Prior to this clinic, 
various music publishers were asked to 
submit their two best new publications 
for 1966. The college band read through 
almost one hundred new compositions be- 
fore the clinic and then played selected 
parts from each for the audience. 

Next Sidney Forest, clarinetist and 
faculty member of the Peabody Con- 
servatory of Music and the Catholic Uni- 
versity of America, presented a clarinet 
clinic designed to be informative to the 
teachers and those students planning to 

The afternoon session was begun with 
a French horn clinic by David Rodgers, 
French hornist and member of the Bowl- 
ing Green University faculty. Mr. Rod- 
gers presented many of the problems con- 
fronting horn teachers and the amateur 

Finally Al Moffat, percussionist from 
Akron, presented an informative percus- 
sion clinic. Mr. Moffat's appeal was also 
to the teacher as he pointed up how easy 
it was to start a drummer. 

Between clinics the visitors were in- 
vited to visit the exhibits of instruments 
and music in the rear of the gym. 

Administrators, Rabbi 
To Lecture At Chapel 

Administration Day will be observed 
in chapel on January 31, with President 
Miller and Dean Ehrhart as the speakers. 

On February 7, the chapel speaker will 
be Rabbi B. Waintrup, spiritual leader of 
the Old York Road Temple in Abington, 

Rabbi Harold B. Waintrup is a gradu- 
ate of Western Reserve University in 
Cleveland, Ohio. He was ordained a 
rabbi at Hebrew Union College in 1947, 
receiving his Master of Hebrew Letters 
Degree. He previously served a congre- 
gation in Steubenville, Ohio. 

The rabbi lectures on college campuses 
under the auspices of The Jewish Chau- 
tauqua Society, an organization dissemi- 
nating authentic information concerning 
Judaism, as part of an educational pro- 

Math Majors Succeed 
In Passing Actuarials 

Three LVC math majors have passed a 
series of tests given by the American So- 
ciety of Actuaries. 

Benjamin Klugh, a sophomore, and 
Ronald Newmaster, a senior, passed part 
I, consisting of calculus, analytic geome- 
try, algebra, and trigonometry. 

Stuart G. Schoenly, a junior, passed 
part II which was mathematical statistics 
and probability. 

Dr. Bernard Bissinger also took and 
passed Part III: finite differences, com- 
pound interest and annuities. 

Gifts And Grants 
Aid Valley Growth 

During Dr. Miller's first year as presi- 
dent of Lebanon Valley College, in 1951, 
there were numerous gifts and grants. 
Alumni giving amounted to $8,516 and 
church support was $27,143. With other 
gifts included, the amount totaled to 

Over $8,000,000 was obtained during 
Dr. Miller's tenure from 1951 to 1966. 
Alumni giving totaled approximately 
$2,000,000. Funds from the church, used 
for current operations and capital im- 
provement, were in the excess of $2,300,- 
000. Federal funds provided approximate- 
ly an additional $1,800,000, which aided 
in the erection of dormitories and the 
dining hall. 

The remainder of the gifts and grants 
during this period was received from 
trustees, parents, friends, foundations, 
business and industry. These funds were 
used for improvement of the academic 
program, faculty salaries and faculty im- 
provement, the library, student aid, en- 
dowment, research and plant improve- 

Included in the $8,000,000 were two 
major capital campaigns. One was for 
$1,200,000—1955-1957, and the other 
was the Centennial Fund campaign of 
1964-66 for $1,600,000. 

In 1966 alumni giving was $311,313, 
and church support was $152^070. Bus- 
iness, industry and foundations gave 
$100,000 and with other giving, the total 
amounted to $713,383. 

The erection of the library, as the first 
new building during President Miller's 
administration, and the constant improve- 
ment in the academic program, are evi- 
dence of Dr. Miller's concern in the ap- 
plication and utilization of gifts and 

Montreal To Open 
Exhibition In April 

Expo 67, Canada's world exhibition, 
will be held in Montreal between April 
28, and October 27, 1967. The unique 
setting of two man-made islands and a 
peninsula in the St. Lawrence River will 
host at least 70 nations, three states, and 
a variety of industries. 

Under its theme 'Terre des Hommes" 
(Man and his World), taken from the 
title of a book by the French author and 
aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Expo 
67 will have five sub themes: Man the 
Explorer, Man the Creator, Man the Pro- 
ducer, Man and the Community, and 
Man the Provider. 

Each of the theme pavilions will con- 
tain dramatic visual presentations of the 
effects of environment on man, and his 
efforts to change that environment to 
realize his aspirations. The Expo marks 
the Canadian centennial as well as the 
325th anniversary of the founding of 

A specially constructed 25,000 seat 
'Expo Stadium will feature the 1700-man 
Canadian Searchlight Tattoo, the first 
appearance in North America of the Gen- 
darmerie Francaise, an international soc- 
cer tournament, a Wild West Rodeo and 
an Indian lacrosse tournament. 

La Ronde, the amusement area, is 
modeled after both Disneyland and 
Copenhagen's Tivoli Gardens. It will 
feature a Pioneer Land, an Old Fort 
Edmonton, a Frontier Village, a two- 
story Aqarium and a sky-ride, among 
other attractions. In the evening the 
Garden of the Stars will be converted 
into a night club, open until 4 a.m. 

At a new art gallery, 150 of the world's 
great masterpieces will be displayed, and 
an outdoor sculpture show will feature 
50 major works by such leading 20th 
century sculptors as Moore, Calder and 

Although Expo 67 covers 1,000 acres a 
free mass transportation system of air- 
conditioned electric cars will cover the 
3Vi mile circuit in 10 minutes, with four 
stops along the way. A Minirail will stop 
within feet of any pavilion. 

Expo 67 tickets are available in three 
varieties, good for a day, a week or an 
entire season. A special computerized 
service, Logexpo, will help handle reser- 

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, January 13, 1967 



(Continued from Page 2) 

The sources of these reports were the 
interrogations of two enemy defectors 
from the provinces of Khanh Hoa and 
Quang Tin. In both cases, the defectors 
had served in the provincial Viet Cong 
battalion — the highest-level enemy unit 
force battalion except for its provincial 

In both cases, the defectors had gone 
over the hill when the provincial bat- 
talion was broken up to reinforce the 
lower-level guerilla companies and pla- 
toons in the districts and villages. In both 
cases also, this happened after the pro- 
vincial battalion had been badly ham- 
mered. One of the defectors was even 
a North Vietnamese — a most unusual 
case of a northerner assigned as a re- 
placement in a local unit! 

What we have to face at this point, 
therefore, is whether the break-up of 
these two provincial battalions indicates 
that General Westmoreland's strategy is 
succeeding, or instead indicates the adop- 
tion of a new strategy by the enemy. I 
venture to suggest that both could be in- 
dicated by this new phenomenon, for 
General Westmoreland's success could ob- 
viously force the adoption of a strategy 
by the Viet Cong. 

Equally obviously, that would not be 
a cause for discouragement. In reality, 
however, there is counter-evidence of a 
more decisive character, indicating that 
the enemy's strategy has not as yet chang- 
ed at all. I say this because the numer- 
ous defector-interrogations seem to re- 
veal to me that the Viet Cong are still 
rather ruthlessly creaming off the best 
men in the local and guerilla units in or- 
der to fill gaps in the ranks of their main 
force battalions that are their offensive 

The main forces are the quasi-regular 
units designed for the "set piece" kind of 
battles that have become known as "Mao 
Tse-tung's Phase III." As long as the 
local and guerilla forces are being weak- 
ened to strengthen the main forces, there 
can be no question that the enemy is pull- 
ing back and digging in for the classical 
guerilla fighting of Phase II. 
The Great Confusion: 

The House Government Operations 
Committee :n Washington has been en- 
gaged in its greatest headache of all time. 
They have been investigating the reasons 
for the diversion of American ammuni- 
tion and other supplies to the Viet Cong. 
On the other hand, in one of those in- 
congruities of war, several trade and com- 
merce sources in Singapore have reported 
that great quantities of Red Chinese steel 
have passed "under the counter" to au- 
thorities in Saigon. A prominent London 
newspaper (The Observer), too, has noted 
this incongruity. While the U. S. Defense 
Department is reticent about the possible 
shipments, a Singapore businessman is 
on record as having admitted: "in the 
confused commerce of our city unusual 
things happen to export-import commodi- 
ties." Also, it has been revealed that bulk 
shipments of cement that regularly arrive 
in Singapore from big cement works at 
Haiphong are also being shipped to Sai- 

The reason for this apparent mix-up is 
simple enough: North Vietnam and South 
Vietnam are not at war (as two separate 
blocs). The war is between the United 
States and South Vietnamese generals on 
the one hand, and North Vietnam on the 
other. Besides, the South Vietnamese sol- 
diers who fight for their generals are so 
touch at one with South Vietnamese civil- 
ians that they do not want the war to end 
a s long as the United States is there to 
Protect their military interests and, at 
the same time, fortify the sources of their 
Upgraded standard of living. 

The recent Saigon strike by South Viet- 
namese workers, though a bitter pill for 
the Americans to swallow, is a shining 
Sample of what I have just indicated. 
The strike itself recalls the recent Bud- 
dhist agitation in which the narrow polit- 
lc al interest was put above the broad na- 
tional interest. It further reveals that Sai- 
gon labor leaders put a higher priority on 
their desires for more money than on 
their beleaguered nation's struggle for 
survival. It just doesn't make sense to 
Se e Vietnamese lying down or playing 
c heckers on the job at a time when

Clio Leads WAA Race 
For Supremacy Trophy 

The Women's Athletic Association has 
recently completed three of the activities 
on its intramural program. The results 
of the individual sports are as follows: 

1st— Janet Hill, Clio 
2nd — Laurie Carpenter, Commuters 
3rd — Dori Kimmich, Clio 
Ping Pong 
1st — Trish Mooney, Delphian 
2nd — Cynthia Melman, Clio 
3rd — Linda Rohrer, Laughlin 
Carole Cameron, SAI 

Volleyball was again the most popular 
sport with twelve teams competing. The 
trophy was taken by the undefeated Clio 
team for the third year in a row. Del- 
phian's pledge team placed second, and 
there was a playoff for third among the 
Commuters, Green Frosh and Vickroy 

Clio is leading in points toward the 
supremacy trophy with 27. Delphian is 
second with 17 points and Laughlin third 
with 8 points- The Commuters and SAI 
have also accumulated points toward the 
trophy, which will be awarded at the ban- 
quet in May. 

Signs are now up in the dorms for 
WAA basketball. The ping pong tourna- 
ment went very well. All participants in 
the badminton tournament, which will be 
posted soon, should observe the dead- 
lines so that their matches will not have 
to be forfeited. 

WAA has also been active outside in- 
tramurals. The organization took part in 
the ICCP program and attended an ice 
hockey game in Hershey on November 

Anyone who has not paid their dues 
please do so before the next meeting 
which will be in February. All new 
members are invited to attend this meet- 

the line (at ever-mounting rates) so that 
Vietnam might live as a nation. 
Politics as usual: 

To think of Communist Russia and 
China as strong supporters of the North 
Vietnamese on the one hand, and of them 
being the greatest antagonists (enemies) 
of the United States, on the other, are 
sufficient indications of the extent of the 
difficulties attending the present peace 
formulas that have been prescribed lately. 

There is no short-cut, magic formula, 
to be used in engineering a great patriotic 
cause led by some universally loved Viet- 
namese or American (or even United Na- 
tions') selection. This type of puerile 
romance cannot be attempted in real life. 
Nor does it seem probable, in the light 
of Vietnam's recent history, that the Viet- 
namese themselves will find quickly and 
easily any revolutionary solution which 
will carry them all the way to victory. 

At this point in time and experience, 
perhaps the most valuable and realistic 
gift to the peace of humanity in South- 
east Asia (and indeed of the world) is to 
make peace with Communist China at 
international level. The childish pretense 
that Communist China should not be tol- 
erated when the whole world (assumedly) 
is conscious of her threat to world peace 
and security is only postponing inevitable 

It must not be forgotten that apart from 
the fact that Communist China — the 
"brain" behind North Vietnam — is not 
officially bound by any international 
agreement to maintain world order, her 
power and presence will be yet greater 
felt as long as the United States contin- 
ues to fool South Vietnamese generals 
that communism, per se, could be wiped 

Matmen Gain Victories 
After Dropping Opener 

Coach Petrofes' matmen have compiled 
a 3 -1 record so far this season. They 
have won matches with PMC, Johns Hop- 
kins, and Albright, but dropped the open- 
er to Moravian. 

The final score for the Moravian 
match, held at home, December 8, was 
14-17. Archie Laughead (123), Sam Will- 
man (137) and Joe Hovetter (145) all 
won their matches, while Jack Howie 
(177) pinned his man in 1:45. 

Two days later the team came back 
with a 30-8 victory over PMC. This was 
an outstanding match for the Dutchmen, 
with a total of five pins: Laughead in 
3:37, Willman in 1:09, Hovetter in 2:33, 
Kerry Althouse (152) in 3:47, and Dave 
Ranc (167) in 1:25. Jack Howie scored 
over a 260-pound Heavyweight 12-4. 

Valley's third match took place at 
Johns Hopkins on December 14. One pin 
was recorded for the Dutchmen by Agu 
Laane (130) in 3:57. Also winning their 
matches were Willman, 8-0; Hovetter, 
6-5; Althouse, 8-0; Ranc, 5-1; and Basta, 
8-1. The final score was 20-13. 

On January 7, the Dutchmen traveled 
to Reading to beat the Albright Lions 
19-16. Willman pinned his man in 6:00, 
and Laughead, Laane, and Basta won 
their matches, making the score LV 14, 
Albright 16 going into the Unlimited cat- 
egory. This match Howie won by de- 
fault, giving Valley another win. 

Individual standings thus far are: 

Willman 4-2, 2 pins 

Howie 3-0, 1 pin 

Laughead 3-1, 1 pin 

Hovetter 3-1, 1 pin 

Basta 2-0 

Laane 2-2, 1 pin 

Althouse 2-2, 1 pin 

Ranc 2-2, 1 pin 

There was a match with Delaware Valley 
Thursday evening at home. 

out of Vietnam by escalating the war, or 
even by other forms of ostracism. What 
the U. S. is doing, in fact, is fighting 
a Soviet war in Vietnam against China! 

North Vietnam wants to be independ- 
ent. She does not want to be a pawn of 
China. Furthermore, the Vietnamese are 
interested in the unification — scientifical- 
ly, educationally, and otherwise — of the 
two Vietnams, which was, in fact, the 
essence of the Geneva accord. Whatever 
grudge the West may have for the East 
(or vice versa), neither could stop each 
other's ideology — democratic or commun- 

If "self-determination" is to be stirred 
by the conscious will of the Vietnamese 
people, they should be left alone (with 
United Nations guidance) to plan their 
own destiny. If and when this state is 
reached, I venture to predict, to the shame 
of anti-communist optimists, that Ho Chi 
Minh (the most popular Vietnamese lead- 
er and Vietnam's own Genghis Khan) will 
win in any election against any other 
leader in either North or South Vietnam. 

To the surprise of so many people, 
even South Vietnamese will vote for him. 
This will only go to show that "blood is 
thicker than water." Premier Ky, of 
course, is not a very significant match 
here. His present government has exposed 
him as a bloated square peg trying to 
force himself into a small round hole! I 
mean just another leader taking "one 
drink for the road" to power. 

But the interesting stake in the Viet- 
nam unification is a possible new type of 
government — an obvious "Democratic- 
Communism" which will give our anxious 
world, and particularly the United Na- 
tions, the key to the solution of the East/ 
West struggle, and also teach nations how 
to live together at peace with each other. 

There is a less sophisticated aspect of 
politics which is incompatible with high- 
strung Western diplomacy. This is the 
politics that assure the masses of people 
that to pursue the road to greater free- 
dom in unity is to ever tighten the native 
religious cult that originally bound them.

"We hear nothing — cheering at the games is like cheering to empty bleechers." 

Dutch Flier 

by The Cheerleaders 

There was a popular song a few years back in which the singer plain- 
tively declaimed, "Hello, Wall" and went on to lament the sorrows of 
being left alone with no one to talk to but the walls, floors, windows, etc. 
As cheerleaders at LVC we have recently begun to have a good deal of 
sympathy for the poor fellow's plight, since for the past several weeks the 
Valley students at basketball games have been about as enthusiastic and 
responsive as walls. For the entire season thus far, the students have 
greeted their team's efforts on the floor with a bemused silence from the 
stands. Can it be that some students think it more collegiate to maintain 
an icy "cool" than to yell a little bit in support of their school's players? 
It would seem so. 

The cheerleaders were pleased to find some response from the fans 
at the game against Wilkes. It is hoped that this will continue for the rest 
of the season. 

Dutchmen Gain Victory, 
85-82, In Overtime Play 

Bob McHenry's basketball team is 
presently sporting a 3-4 record. But this 
record does not tell the whole story about 
the 1966-67 basketball team. Many of 
the Valley's games have been closely 
fought contests with the score simply 
telling when the clock ran out. The Mora- 
vian game was lost by three points, the 
Muhlenberg game by nine points. 

Saturday night saw the Valley and 
Wilkes battle in a seesaw contest in 
which the regular playing time closed in 
a 78-78 tie. A five minute overtime per- 
iod found Valley with good control of 
the ball, good enough to lead them to an 
85-82 victory over the Colonels. Bob 
Atkinson was the leading scorer for LVC 
with 22 points. Pat Simpson added 20 
points to Valley's score. 

Thus far this season Pat Simpson, and 
Bromley Billmeyer, the two juniors on 
the starting five, are leading the team in 
scoring with 103 and 98 points, respec- 
tively. The other three starters, all sopho- 
mores, have contributed a combined 254 
points to Valley's scores. Bob Atkinson 
has scored 90 points, Jerry Stauffer, 84 
points, and Harold Todd, 80 points. 

The next game is here Saturday night 
against a strong Albright team, game time 
8:15 p.m.

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, January 13, 1967 


Student Discusses Inhumanity 

Before Christmas a student here who is 
aware of my interest in the problem of 
the "unconcerned bystander" asked if I 
intended to investigate it by cutting up a 
rat and watching to see if another rat 
stopped to "help" him. Although this 
question was put facetiously it does imply 
the very real tendency for laymen to over- 
emphasize the place of rats in psychology: 
in fact to conceive of psychological in- 
vestigation almost exclusively in terms of 
rats in mazes, rats in Skinner boxes, rats 
with electrodes implanted in euphoric and 
depressive brain centers, ad infinitum. 

Actually rats serve as subjects for just 
a modest portion of psychological re- 
search, their main asset being that they do 
lack the self-consciousness to reason and 
rationalize their position and to form 
value judgments; this self-consciousness 
is often an unwanted variable in studies 
of basic behaviorist principles. However, 
much investigation is directed toward un- 
derstanding those qualities which dis- 
tinguish men from rats. 

Working with humans 

The problem of social responsibility 
does involve man's distinctively human 
traits and therefore human beings have 
been the subjects for such studies. Work- 
ing with humans who are so infinitely var- 
iable requires more dynamic and creative 
yet at the same time more subtle ex- 
perimental designs. 

John Darley and Bibb Latane of NYU 
and Columbia have been working with a 
rather simple but intriguing theory as to 
why a group of bystanders fail to re- 
spond in an emergency situation. In their 
first study they tried to determine whether 
apathy, like panic, is contagious in a 

The subjects were students who be- 
lieved themselves to be reporting for inter- 
views. When each subject arrived he was 

by Helaine Hopkins 

given a pre-interview questionnaire which 
he was to fill out either in a room by 
himself or with others. While he was 
filling out the questionnaire he became 
aware of a potentially emergency situa- 
tion: smoke began to fill the room 
through a small vent in the wall. 

The dependent variable in this exper- 
iment was the length of time it took the 
subject to report the smoke — the in- 
dependent variable was the number of 
students in the room. A student alone re- 
ported the smoke significantly more fre- 
quently than three students together. 

Apathy and groups 

The part of the experiment designed to 
test the contagion of apathy placed the 
subject with two students hired to be 
apathetic to the smoke. However, by also 
having groups in which none of the mem- 
bers knew what to expect in the situation, 
they discovered that inducing apathy 
artificially was not necessary. The mere 
presence of three individuals produced an 
apathy which often prevented the smoke 
from being reported until it became so 
thick the subjects were coughing and 
choking as they worked on their question- 

Now fully aware that group inhibition 
of bystander action was more than con- 
tagious apathy, Darley and Latane des- 
igned a new experiment attempting to 
recreate psychologically the situation of 
the witnesses who observed the famous 
Kitty Genovese murder of 1964. It will 
be remembered that these witnesses were 
not in communication with each other, 
but walled off in their separate apart- 
ments, fortified with the following ra- 

tionalizations for not acting: that others 
were either already taking action, or that 
if no one was taking action they would 
be equally guilty. 

In line with these rationalizations, 
Darley and Latane hypothesized that the 
greater the number of other people as- 
sumed present, the less likely any single 
individual is to report an emergency. 

Each subject believed he was taking 
part in a student council survey of per 
sonal student problems and that he was 
being placed in a separate room with mi- 
crophone and earphones so he could talk 
freely without embarrassment. Actually 
there was only one subject on each trial 
and the voices explaining their problems 
were just recordings. 

In each case one of these recorded 
voices feigned a serious attack or seizure 
and asked for help. Similarity to the 
Genovese case was established by the 
fact that the subject could not communi- 
cate with anyone else to know if he was 
taking action to help the victim. 
Human motivation 

The dependent variable again was how 
quickly the subject left his room to re- 
port the victim's distress; the independent 
variable how large a group he believed 
himself to be a part of or how many re- 
corded voices he had heard on the cir- 
cuit. The hypothesis was confirmed in 
that only 54% of the subjects took action 
when they thought there were five other 
"bystanders," whereas 85% of those who 
thought they were the only bystander did 
report the emergency. 

This research not only demonstrates 
the obvious need for human subjects in 
understanding uniquely human motiva- 
tion, but may prove practical as well in 
pointing the way through understanding 
to the amelioration of this most human of 
our problems: man's inhumanity to man. 

PCEP Announces 
Internship Program 

The Pennsylvania Center for Education 
has announced guidelines for an under- 
graduate political internship program 
which began on January 1, 1967. The pur- 
pose of the program is to put college un- 
dergraduates to work with active poli- 
ticians or political organizations on the 
state and local level in Pennsylvania. 
Preference will be given to students 
working with state legislators. 

A full time ten-week summer intern- 
ship, for example, will carry a $750 
stipend. However, internships may be 
arranged for any part of the academic 
year and for any period of time from four 
weeks to a year. 

The student could be a legislative aide 
to a state legislator, or an aid to a mayor, 
an assistant to a county chairman during 
a spring registration drive, a fall cam- 
paign helper, etc. In no case can a stipend 
exceed $750. Whatever the time period or 
scheduling, payment will be based on $75 
for a full 40-hour week. 

Applications for internships must be 
submitted jointly by the student and the 
politician or political organization with 
whom the student would serve. The ap- 
plication should be approved by the 
campus PCEP adviser. 

The assumption of the internship pro- 
gram is that the student already has a 
partisan commitment; thus, students 
should seek internships only with poli- 
ticians or political organizations whose 
partisan affiliation they share. 

Interns will be required to submit a 
report of their experience to PCEP and 
to their campus adviser prior to the final 
PCEP payment. The expectation is that 
a research project can be devised which 
will be mutually satisfactory to the cam- 
pus adviser, the politician or political or- 
ganization and the student. 

Students may obtain application forms 
from Professor Alex Fehr, campus ad- 
viser, or by writing to: Dr. Sidney Wise, 
Director, Pennsylvania Center for Edu- 
cation in Politics, Franklin and Marshall 
College, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 17604. 

Office Announces Dates

pleted prior to the start of interviewing. 
Sign-up sheets will be available in the 
placement office January 16. The com- 
panies scheduled to come on campus for 
the first two weeks of interview schedule 
are the following:

Economics and Business Administration. 
An additional $500 has now been added 
to this fund by the bank. 

The award is given to students in the 
economics and business administration 
department on the basis of outstanding 
scholarship and good campus citizenship.

United States Policies 
Obtain Asian Support 

This material is prepared and coordinated by the full-time CPS correspondent 
in Southeast Asia. 

By Howard Moffett 
The Collegiate Press Service 

Saigon (CPS) — It is one of the major ironies of contemporary history 
that Marxism, rooted in a thoroughly materialistic concept of man, has in 
the hands of Mao Tse-tung, Lin Piao, Ho Chi Minh and Vo Nguyen Giap 
become the most powerful spiritual forces in Asia — while the United States 
which claims a Judaeo-Christian spiritual heritage, has sought to counter 
that force with increasing amounts of military and material aid. 

In country after country of the third world, Mao has sounded the 
battle cry for a threadbare struggle to the death against U. S. imperialism 
and its lackeys; and time after time America has called for peace with hon- 
or and cooperation among nations, and has poured in more weapons and 
dollars to check the spiritual tide. 

The paradox is rooted in the American view of the world. 

America vs. World, Ideologically 

American intellectuals often speak of the present as 
age. One reason, certainly, is the decline in influence of 
tian heritage. Another is that American and European 
comparatively free of the internal class conflicts which 
voked to explain. Historically, our own political and 
draw largely on the traditions of Locke, Jefferson, and 
of whom stresses ideas of equality and minimized class 

More fundamentally, we have come to 
view other peoples' ideologies as ob- 
stacles to problem-solving, which we 
have unconsciously raised to the status 
of a new ideology. Perhaps, for lack of 
a dialectical content to our own new 
ideology, American society is increasing- 
ly preoccupied with a subtle variation of 
the "might makes right" theme: to wit 
that technology, emotional detachment, 
and hard work will solve any problem if 
applied in large enough doses. 

So the race is on, with Asian com- 
munists trying to make major break- 
throughs in technologies or war in time to 
thwart the immense appeal of Western 
aid to poorer or underdeveloped Asian 

And who is winning? There have been 
several test cases in the past year. Though 
the results are not necessarily permanent, 
they have generally spelled a series of 
major disasters for the Chinese.

Who Is Winning? 

— In Moslem Indonesia, the sixth larg- 
est country in the world, the army en- 
gineered an anti-Chinese coup with sup- 
port from powerful student groups through- 
out the country. American advisors here 
believe it wouldn't have happened but for 
the U.S. presence in Viet Nam; they are 
probably right. General Suharto now ap- 
parently has hopeful feelers out for re- 
newed American aid. 

— In August, North Korea carefully 
dissociated herself from the Peking line, 
and began making overtures in Moscow's 

direction. One reason, no doubt, was the 
continued presence of the Eighth U.S. 
Army south of the 38th parallel. 

— Meanwhile, South Korea and Tai- 
wan are being billed as major American 
aid success stories. From what I saw this 
summer in both countries, the stories are 
plausible enough. 

— Unconfirmed reports say General Ne 
Win in a recent White House visit asked 
President Johnson for American aid to 
counter Chinese-supported guerillas in 
the northern forests of Burma. To Burma 
watchers, the xenophobic socialist gen- 
eral's American tour was surprise enough; 
U.S. aid would indicate a significant 
shift in Burma's foreign policy, which un- 
til now has been very deferential to 

— In the face of increasing guerrilla 
activity in both countries, Thailand and 
the Philippines seem more firmly at- 
tached than ever to American support. 

— Even Malaysia, with British ground 
troops guarding her borders, called the 
U.S. her "greatest and strongest ally" 
during President Johnson's visit October 
30. Three days later, Prime Minister 
Tengku Abdul Rahman announced that 
"Peking-oriented terrorists of the 'Ma- 
layan Liberation Army' " were operating 
again in the peninsula's central highlands, 
100 miles closer to Kuala Lumpur than 
they have since 1960. 

And that about wraps up Southeast 
Asia except for Cambodia, Laos, and 
Viet Nam.

Boards To Offer 
CQT This Spring 
To Eligible Males 

Applications for the March 11 and 31 
and April 8, 1967 administration of the 
College Qualification Test are now avail- 
able at Selective Service System local 
boards throughout the country. 

Eligible students who intend to take 
this test should apply at once to the near- 
est Selective Service local board for an 
application card and a Bulletin of Infor- 
mation for the test. 

Following instructions in the Bulletin, 
the student should fill out his application 
and mail it immediately to SELECTIVE 
Education Testing Service, P.O. Box 988, 
Princeton, New Jersey, 08540. To ensure 
processing, applications must be post- 
marked no later than midnight, February 
10, 1967. 

According to Educational Testing Ser- 
vice, which prepares and administers the 
College Qualification Test for the Select- 
ive Service System, it will be greatly to 
the student's advantage to file his appli- 
cation at once. By registering early, he 
stands the best chance of being assigned 
to the test center he has chosen. Because 
of the possibility that he may be assigned 
to any of the testing dates, it is very im- 
portant that he list a center and center 
number for every date on which he will 
be available. Scores on the test will be 
sent directly to the registrant's local board. 

Peace Corps Members 
To Visit LV Campus 

The Peace Corps representatives will 
be on campus, February 15 and 16, to dis- 
cuss opportunities in this field with all 
students, but particularly juniors and sen- 
iors, and to recruit possible candidates. 

One of the recruiters is Helen M. 
Tshudy, a 1966 graduate of Lebanon 
Valley, who received a B.S. in Elemen- 
tary Education. Miss Tshudy, assigned to 
Liberia, taught at an elementary mission 
school of about 350 students in the capi- 
tal city of Monrovia. 

Miss Tshudy worked in a hospital for 
six weeks during school vacation, assist- 
ing in the operating room and in the 
clinic. In addition, she taught art classes 
and coached a volleyball team in Mon- 
rovia, illustrated a children's textbook, 
worked on a smallpox vaccinating team, 
helped set up a library and designed a 
new report card which changed the grad- 
ing system at her school. 

Included in the two-day visit are two 
films, on Kenya and Brazil. The second 
recruiter is assigned to South America, 
so the two will be on hand to discuss the 

A modern language aptitude test will 
be given to interested students. This 
shows whether a person is capable of be- 
ing assigned to a country with a foreign 
language, or whether an English speaking 
nation should be chosen. 

Wednesday afternoon and all day 
Thursday, a display booth will be set up 
in the north room of the snack bar. Al- 

County Fair Ends 
Drive For Charity 

This year's Campus Chest Drive will 
conclude on Saturday, February 11, with 
the annual County Fair, to be held in 
the Lynch Memorial Gymnasium be- 
ginning at 8 p.m. Admission will be $.25. 

This year's fair includes booths spon- 
sored by Sinfonia, Clio, Jiggerboard, 
APO, and Chemistry Club. To appease 
your appetite there will be a WCC bake 
sale, SAI homemade candy apples, Del- 
phian soft pretzels, and an SCA refresh- 
ment stand. 

The fair will close with a grand auction 
beginning at 9:30. Dr. Robert Griswold 
of the Chemistry Department will serve 
as auctioneer. In addition to books, cloth- 
ing, and odds and ends from near and far, 
there are dinners with faculty members 
and Philo slaves for auction. 

If there are any campus organizations 
that still wish to participate in the County 
Fair, they may do so by contacting the 
Campus Chest Committee through the 
Chaplain's Office no later than 4:00 
Friday afternoon. 

though plans are not definite it is hoped 
the representatives will be able to speak 
in various classes. 

The Peace Corps, organized in 1961, 
has increased rapidly and this summer 
will send groups into ten new nations. 
Salaries are not high, but the experience 
obtained and the satisfaction of helping 
to better conditions in underprivileged 
countries makes the Peace Corps some- 
thing to be seriously considered.

New Vice Presidents 

Named By Trustees 

The creation of three new positions at Lebanon Valley College has been announced by Dr. Frederic 
Miller, president of the College. According to the announcement, the appropriate Committees of the Board 
of Trustees have authorized the appointment of three vice presidents, effective February 1, 1967. 

Named to the positions are Dr. Carl Ehrhart, Dr. Earl Mezoff, and Dr. Robert Riley. All will retain their 
current functions, Dean of the College, Assistant to the President, and Controller, respectively, in their new 

capacities. . . 

"The decision to create the new positions came after several years of thorough and continuing study of the 
functions and duties of the Office of President of the College. The assistance and counsel of a number of con- 
sultants from other institutions of higher education are reflected in the changes," said Dr. Miller. 

Two major factors were taken into consideration before the decisions were made. First, the demands, 
both internal and external, placed upon a college president necessitates increased delegation of authority with 
commensurate responsibility to the office. Such delegation will release the chief executive from many time 
consuming yet important activities, and will permit him the opportunity to meet his basic responsibility with 
more efficiency and dispatch. 

Second, the ever increasing involve- 
ment of the three affected offices with 
other educational institutions, business, 
industry, and government, both state and 
federal, demands that the college will 
benefit most if such contacts and discus- 
sions are made at either the presidential or 
y ice-presidential level. 

Dr. Ehrhart, a native of Lebanon, re- 
ceived a Bachelor of Arts degree from 
f-ebanon Valley College, Bachelor of Div- 
inity degree from United Theological 
Seminary, Dayton, Ohio, and his Doctor 
°f Philosophy degree from Yale. He was 

professor of philosophy and chairman of 
the Department of Philosophy and Re- 
ligion. He has been Dean of the College 
since July 1, I960. 

Dr. Mezoff s service to Lebanon Valley 
began on July 1, 1963 when he was named 
Assistant to the President. A native of 
McKeesport, Pa., he received his Bachelor 
of Arts degree from Thiel College, Green- 
ville, Pa., his M.A. from Michigan State, 
and his Doctor of Education from Penn 
State. As Assistant to the President, he co- 
ordinates the area of college relations, 
which includes the offices of Alumni Re- 

lations, Development, and Public Rela- 

Dr. Riley has been of the college's 
staff since 1951 when he was named 
chairman of the Department of economics 
and business administration. In 1962 Dr. 
Riley was appointed Controller. Born 
in Waynesboro, Dr. Riley received a 
Bachelor of Science in education degree 
from Shippensburg State, his M.S. from 
Columbia University, and his Doctor of 
Philosophy degree from New York Uni- 

Vigil Demonstrates 
Concern Over W ar 

The beginning of the Lunar New Year, and with it the truce in 
Vietnam, signalized a movement of concerned students and faculty 
members to draw attention to the dilemma in Vietnam. The movement 
began on Wednesday, with a vigil which was held from noon to 1 p.m., 
and was continued on Thursday and today. 
Bradley Rentzel, the student coor- 

dinator of the movement, stated that 
there was "a fine showing of concerned 
students and faculty at the vigil." Mr. 
Rentzel said that he hoped there would 
be some organized discussions on the 
campus in the future to help students 
form opinions about the conflict in .Viet- 

All the participating students said that 
they felt this vigil was an open demon- 
stration of their concern for the suffer- 
ing that was going on in that country and 
the effects it was having on the rest of 
the world. 

Students Schedule

Two other recitals are scheduled by the 
music department this month. On Thurs- 
day, February 16, at 8 p.m. a public re- 
cital will be presented in Engle Hall. 
Participating students include: Linda 
Rothermel, cellist; Kathleen Krickory, 
soprano; Carol Naugle, pianist; Gretchen 
Long, mezzo soprano; Patricia Rohr- 
baugh, pianist; Edwin Kisiel, bass-bari- 
tone; and Donald Kitchell, trombonist. 

Also this month on Monday, February 
20, at 8 p.m., a student recital will be 
presented by Jean Slade, pianist, and 
David Keehn, hornist. 

What Was That, Again? 

Language can be confusing, and stu- 
dents often misunderstand their profes- 
sors. With the start of the new semester 
full of new courses and new professors 
the following list has been compiled to 
help the student meet and fully under- 
stand the statements he has already heard 
or will hear throughout the semester. This 
material is presented as a quotation you 
might hear in class, followed by a short 
explanation of the true meaning or an ad- 
dition to the thought presented. 

"As for attendance, you may cut as 
often as you like. I really don't care 
whether you come or not." 

But don't expect anything better than 
a C. 

"The tests will be based mostly on the 
lecture material." 

Memorize the textbook. 

"I'll try to follow the text as much as 

Lectures consist of reading the text. 

"To be fair all sections will be given 
the same tests." 

You will be tested on everything your 
class doesn't cover but the other class 


"I'll try to let you out in plenty of time 
for your next class." 

Expect to get out 10 to 15 seconds be- 
fore your next class. 

"Your lab reports should include just 
your data, results, and conclusions."

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, February 10, 1967 

A glimpse of the line of students waiting to register last Monday. The line 
stretched from the first floor of South Hall to the third. 

Return To Reason 

Lebanon Valley College is fast losing one of its most important quali- 
ties — its small collegeness. 

A small college means something different to everyone, but one of its 
characteristics is its ability to impart to its members, both faculty and 
student, the feeling of a "personal touch." Whether a person decides to 
attend a small college because he wants the opportunity to interact with his 
fellow students and professors in small classes, because he objects to the 
feeling of anonimity prevalent in some large universities, or for other 
reasons, the desire for the "pesonal touch" is of basic importance in influ- 
encing his decision. 

Lebanon Valley College used to have the "personal touch." Now, in 
many cases, all that is left of the "personal touch" is its hollow image. In 
many of the classrooms on campus, the echo of many voices participating 
in a discussion has been replaced by the echo of one solitary voice forced 
to lecture to a mob of some ninety students. The college is suffering from 
an acute case of growing pains, and those pains finally come to rest with 
the students. 

The class schedule is hopelessly outdated, and the administration 
building is just as hopelessly outdated in trying to accommodate it. The 
Calendar Revision Committee has been formed to make some too long 
neglected changes in many areas of the college curriculum. But this com- 
mittee will take more than a year to complete its report, and it will be at 
least another year before any of the proposed changes are implemented. 

Until that time, every Tuesday will see one man face a TV camera 
(and one quarter of the student body) and vainly attempt to generate inter- 
est in his subject. 

Until that time, students will take tests made up by a group of pro- 
fessors, some of whom they have seen only two or three times, who foolishly 
try to convince themselves and others that the section that each prepares is 
equally fair to all the students. 

Until that time, 55 out of 120 male freshmen will have four or five 
final examinations within the first three days of the examination period. 

Some people might expect or learn to adjust to similar situations in 
large universities. However, Lebanon Valley College, with its student 
body of approximately 825, is anything but a large university. It is hard to 
believe that the "personal touch" could exist in this atmosphere — with a 
few exceptions, it doesn't. A student attending a small college should not 
have to expect or adjust to such situations. 

There is a solution to this problem. Lebanon Valley is, in many 
areas, understaffed and underequipped to handle a student body of 825. 
The most realistic solution is to get more staff members and more facilities 
(the cry of every college). But these improvements do not fall from the sky, 
they cost money. 

The college raised tuition this year, but not as much as some other 
institutions which offer less. The tuition will probably continue to be raised 
over the years. Those who invest their money in this college expect the 
"best buy for their money." If the college ceases to improve itself, it will 
cease to be the best buy for the price it charges. 

As a small college, Lebanon Valley owes its students and faculty the 
"personal touch" of a superior faculty-student ratio. Either some definite 
steps should be taken to make class sizes conform to reason and give back 
to Lebanon Valley College the "personal touch" it once possessed, or the 
idea of this institution as a small college should be laid to rest with a little 
more dignity than is now the case. — P.P.

Campus Scene 

Dear Bull Phrog, 

Well, it certainly was good to get back 
to school once again to start another 
semester. A few interesting things hap- 
pened this first week that I'm just dying 
to tell you about. 

We all had to register last Monday 
from 8:30 to 12:30 in the gym. It seems 
that not everyone had registered by 12:30, 
so they moved operations to South Hall. 
It was really hysterical to see the people 
there tip-toeing on the floor. No, they 
weren't afraid of waking up the registrar, 
they just didn't want to bend the metal 
bars that hold up the building. Actually, 
the only bad part of the whole affair was 
when some of the guys started singing 
"Charlie and the MTA," and one girl 
started crying. 

We had something introduced here that 
I bet you don't have at your school. They 
call them grade cards, and you get two 
for every course you take (if you're 
lucky). Each has all the different grades 
on them, from "A" to you know what. 
We circle the grade we expect from each 
professor on one of the two sets of cards. 
Then, at the end of the semester, the 
professor indicates his feelings on the oth- 
er set, and the registrar takes the average 
of the two for the final grade. 

Filling out these cards and getting 
them to the registrar was a little con- 
fusing, and some of us didn't understand 
the new system. The 500 who failed to 
circle the grade they expect are going to 
get a chance to do it on Monday, from 
7:00 to 7:30. Great, huh? 

It's getting late, so I just -have time to 
tell you about the food before I go. 

Well, the food has been just out of 
this world since we got back. For exam- 
ple, last Friday's fish feast was served 
to a thundering herd of twenty students 
who hadn't been forewarned about the 
bill of fare. Needless to say, the Co-Ed 
and Hot Dog's did a rather brisk busi- 

Isn't it nice that the dining hall staff 
always reserves at least one night a week 
for the college family to eat out? 

Bye for now, I've got to fix my grade

Can Exams? 

by Bobbie Gable 

Exam period often brings to mind the question "Are exams really 
necessary?" Students frequently discuss this question, especially around 
the end of January and the end of May. 

Theoretically exams should put no strain on the student. They are 
supposed to test what he has learned in the course during the semester, to 
test his ability to utilize this knowledge, to put it together, to see the pat- 
terns and relationships. An exam like this should require no studying or 
at most a short review of the course. Often, however, it degenerates into a 
test to cover everything missed on previous tests. Or the professor catches 
up and covers three or four weeks of new work in the last week to "finish 
the book" or"get back on schedule" when he has fallen behind. Then the 
exam is predominantly material covered from January 3 to January 13. 
Or even worse it is a factual test on details from September to January. 
Factuals on one unit are hard enough to study for, and to prepare for an 
exam covering the whole semester means the student practically has to 
reread everything from the entire semester. Not review — but rememorize 

Even if all exams were ideal and cover- 
ed general understanding of the material, 
there still would be problems. A student 
who has four exams in a row hardly has 
the energy to lift a pencil to write the 
fourth one. A student who may be com- 
ing down with the flu or a cold simply 
does not do as well as he could. 

Should as much as one third to one 
half of the grade in a 17 week course 
depend on a three hour exam? 

One alternative might be more quizzes 
and tests, or more term papers and as- 
signments. This is often looked at as busy 
work or as putting too much pressure on 
the student during the semester. He seems 
to be doing papers and taking tests every 
week, with no break in the work. 



Another alternative is the elimination 
of grades. So many things required in a 
course are done for one reason — so the 
professor can give you a grade. Isn't the 
purpose of the course — of college — to 
learn rather than to be graded? Perhaps 
a pass-fail system is the answer. 

Below are the opinions of some students 
on the subjects of exams and grading. 

Dave Fetters: While it may be true 
that final exams in their present form are 
less than fair, it is difficult to propose a 
better system. More work during the 
semester with less emphasis on the final 
is the best idea, theoretically, but many 
students already have more work than 
they can comprehensively cover; to add 
more in every course would be disas- 
trous to teacher-student rapport. 

I believe that the only alternative to 
exams is more tests and quizzes. I favor 
this alternative because it would reflect 
more fairly the student's attitude through- 
out the semester. 

If the present stress on final exam 
grades must continue, couldn't we be 
given four or five free days between the 
end of classes and the beginning of exams? 
This would alleviate many of the prob- 
lems posed by poor exam schedules, by 
allowing the student time to prepare for 
his multi-exam days. 

On the side of the system as it stands 
is its one redeeming feature (especially 
noticeable to me). That is, I feel that a 
student should be given, if not encourage- 
ment, at least credit for learning, not just 
for when he learns. And some, alas few, 
students are able to learn much better 
under pressure of a final exam. 

Dell Lokey: As I interpret them, final 
exams are supposed to reveal what the 
student has learned throughout the 17 
weeks of the semester. But do exams real- 
ly show the effort a student has put forth? 
Most, if not all, courses have periodic 
hour exams to determine the student's 
progress in the course. It would seem, 
then, that the professor would know from 
the hourly exams whether a student is 
keeping up with the assignments and hoW 
well he understands them. But at the end

Track Team Prepares 
For Season's Opening 

The varsity track team has begun its 
practices. The team is coached by Mr. 
Mayhoffer and Mr. Darlington, and cap- 
tained by Larry Painter and Dick Wil- 
liams. Coach Darlington said he has a 
turnout of about 35 men and is encour- 
aged by the number of underclassmen that 
have come out for the team. 

Returning from last year are Larry 
Painter, who throws the javelin and is a 
record holder in the half mile. Dick Wil- 
liams is a consistent winner in the half 
mile and the two mile and a valuable 
asset to the team. Other key men are Joe 
Foster in the sprints, broad jump and 
mile relay; Glen Horst, record holder in 
the pole vault; Larry Light, hurdles, mile 
relay team; Mike Kamuyu, high jump and 
broad jump; and Bob Martalus in the 220, 
440, and hurdles. 

With these men as a nucleus the track 
team will try to improve upon its last 
year's 7-5 record, although they went 6-2 
in dual meets. The opening meet is with 
Washington College at home on April 1. 

Coach Darlington wishes to pass on 
this information to the students. The 
gym will be opened Friday nights from 
7-11 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 
from 1-5 p.m. This is for LVC stu- 
dents only! No other persons are to 
be permitted in the gym. Violations of 
this will necessitate the closing of the 


LV Grapplers Bow 
To E-town Matmen 

The Lebanon Valley College matmen 
met a strong E-town team last Saturday 
and the E-town men handed Valley their 
second loss of the season. The final score 
was 25-6, with E-town winning all but 
two of the matches. The Valley's record 
is now 5-2, with losses to E-town and 
Moravian. The grapplers have beaten 
PMC 30-8; Johns Hopkins 21-13; Al- 
bright 19-16; Delaware Valley 17-12; and 
Wagner 24-11. 

The E-town match started out with 
Archie Laughead pitted against Al Kurtz. 
Archie gave it his best, but was finally 
pinned in the third period by Kurtz. Bud 
Kaufmann, at 130 lbs., wrestled a fine 
match against Doug Taylor, but was just 
beaten by a score of 4-3. Next was Sam 
Willman, captain of the LV team at 137 
lbs. Sam continued his unbeaten record 
by winning 15-6 over Rich Wilson. Sam's 
record now stands at 7-0. Also at the 
Delaware Valley match, Sam broke Dave 
Mahler's old record of most consecutive 
wins. With Sam's win the score of the 
match was 8-3. Next came Joe Hovetter 
at 145 lbs. against E-town's team captain 
John Elliot. Joe wrestled a superb match, 
but the final score was 3-1 in favor of 
Elliot. Kerry Althouse, 152, went against 
Earl Brinser in another good match, but 
came out on the wrong end of the score 
in a 7-3 decision. At 160, Harry Wertsch 
went down to Steve Fritz in a 10-1 decis- 
ion. This gave the E-town team a com- 
manding lead of 17-3. Joe Torre, at 
167, wrestled Ron Spinner in a good 
match, but succumbed in a 10-5 decision. 
Even pins in the next two matches 
couldn't have won the match for Valley. 
Jack Howie, wrestling at 177 and still 
fighting, beat John Fry in a great match 
for a 6-5 decision. This gave the Valley 
team a total of 6 points to E-town's 20 
points. The heavyweight match was for- 
feited by Valley and the final score was 
E-town 25, LV 6. 

The team's next match is February 10 
against Western Maryland, at 8:00 in the 
Lynch Memorial Gymnasium. 

Varsity Lacrosse Team 
Begins Second Season 

Varsity lacrosse will enter its second 
season under the guidance of William and 
Bob McHenry. Last year, through a fine 
effort by everyone, the fledgeling lacrosse 
team posted a 3-4 record. This year the 
team is captained by Charles Mowrer 
and Gary Gunther. 

The team has begun pre-season practice 
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 
4:30-5:30. February 27 the team will 
begin its regular practice every day from 
4-6. The coach has scheduled 3 pre-sea- 
son scrimmages; the first one being against 
Philadelphia Lacrosse Club on March 11. 
The other two are with Catonsville La- 
crosse Club and New England College. 
These scrimmages will sharpen the Dutch- 
man team and ready them for their first 
match against Lafayette at home on 
April 4. 

There are 27 boys out for the team, 
six of whom are returning lettermen and 
four freshmen who have had previous 
high school experience. Rich Bower who 
was an outstanding goalie last year will 
not be returning to the team and will be 
a big loss to the team this year. Bill 
Wheeler, freshman from Collinsville, 
Connecticut, has shown a terrific attitude 
and desire in volunteering to take over 
the goal position. Returning on the de- 
fensive unit are Tom Falato, Steve 
Brandsberg and Kerry Althouse. The mid- 
fielders coming back are Joe Mowrer, 
Gary Gunther, Denny Misal and Jimmy 
Evans. Peter Brennan, Jerry Stauffer and 
Paul Kaplan will make up the returning 
attackmen. Outstanding freshmen boys 
out for the team are Bill Furber, Bob 
Stevrolis and John Martancik. 

The team will play an eight game 
schedule this year. It will try to improve 
on last year's record. Any persons inter- 
ested in coming out for the team may 
come out before February 27. Coach Mc- 
Henry will welcome anyone who wishes 
to be lacrosse manager. The persons in- 
terested should contact the coach. 

The 1967 Lebanon Valley Golf 
Team will be coached by Jerry Petro- 
fes and captained by Walt Smith. 
There will be an important organiza- 
tional meeting Monday, February 13, 
at 9:30 p.m. in room 102 in the gym. 
All interested students should plan to 
attend this varsity golf meeting. 


The Pennsylvania State Employ- 
ment Service announces that applica- 
tions are available for employment

Dutch Flier 

by Will Lamont 

Catching up on varsity basketball we must go back to Saturday, 
January 14, when the Lebanon Valley Dutchmen played host to the 
Albright Lions. The Lions, as usual, were strong and were the picked 
favorites over the Dutchmen. Bob McHenry's boys didn't feel this way at 
all, and they played a magnificent game. The half time score was Albright 
30, LV 30. It was a real close first half and the second half proved to 
be just as exciting. When the second half ended, the Valley boys had 
scored 47 points to the Lions' 39 points. This gave the McHenry boys the 
margin of victory with a final score of 77-69. The Flying Dutchmen had 
defeated an arch-rival Albright in a great game. Billmeyer led the Dutch- 
men attack with 23 points, while Stauffer scored 16 points. Pat Simpson 
contributed 11 points, Todd and Decker both scored 10 and Atkinson 7. 

The team then moved to meet Moravian on February 2, at Moravian. 
The Greyhounds outran the Dutchmen and handed them a 78-64 loss. The 
fourth game of the season the Dutchmen had played Moravian and lost a 
closer one by a score of 78-75. Contributing to the Valley's score were 
Billmeyer with 17 points, Simpson and Stauffer with 15, Atkinson with 10, 
Todd 5, and Decker 2. 

Last Saturday, February 4, the Lebanon Valley basketball team met 
the Elizabethtown Blue Jays at Elizabethtown. The Valley suffered a 
crushing defeat at the hands of a strong Elizabethtown team led by John 
Lentz. The final score was 101-73. The Valley boys did their best but the 
Blue Jays were overwhelming. The Blue Jays had a shooting percentage of 
54% while Valley had a 40% one. Foul shooting percentage was close 
with Valley having 69% and E-town 70%. For the Valley, Stauffer had 
16 points, Billmeyer, Simpson, and Atkinson had 13 each. Bruce Decker 
added 12 points while Todd and Moyer contributed 4 and 2 points 
respectively. This was the way the E-Town game went and the Valley was 
overrun by a strong and powerful Blue Jay squad. 

Bud Kaufmann grapples with E-town's Doug Taylor. Bud put up a good fight, 
but when time ran out was one point short and lost 4-3. 


(Continued from Page 2) 

of the semester students are subjected to 
the 3-hour marathons and the pre-requisite 
of studying them. For some students 
this studying means cramming in a whole 
semester's work; for others it is a game 
of chance where the student must logically 
determine which picayune questions the 
professor will ask; for the more fortunate 
students a brief survey of notes is all that 
is necessary. But these three methods 
might have to be used by a single student 
who has consistently struggled with one 
course, has been bored to death with 
trivialities in another, and has worked for 
and learned from still another course. 
Neither can we ignore the pressure under 
which the professors must labor in mak- 
ing up the examinations and getting out 
the grades. 

Perhaps one answer to the dilemma 
would be to do away with finals alto- 
gether and rely only on the hourly exams, 
papers, daily preparation, etc. for the 
final grade. Another solution might be to 
give the exam only to those who wish to 
take it in order to raise their grade. Still 
another possibility would be to offer the 
exam on several different days and allow 
the students to arrange their own exam 
schedules to their own satisfaction. 

At any rate, I do not feel that exams 
adequately show the work students put 
into any given course, especially when 
they have done consistently good work 
and one three hour inquisition ruins a 
17 week average. 

Chris McComsey: I do not feel that 
so much emphasis should be placed on a 
final exam in any course, especially one 
that carries as much weight as three 
credits. If you work for 17 weeks and get 
a good (or bad) grade, why should one 
exam have such a disastrous (or bene 
ficial) effect on your semester? 

Or as is sometimes the case, why should 

a student be expected to take an exam in 
a course, regardless of the amount of 
credit, in which he has spent more than 
the time an exam would take to prepare 
a notebook of the semester's work? Isn't 
he already familiar enough with the 

I really can't suggest any plausible so- 
lution for this problem since in this pres- 
ent educational system, grades are a 
necessary evil. I do not think a pass-fail 
system would be good since this places 
even more emphasis on the exam than 
already exists. 

Carl Sabold: The controversy over 
final examinations at LVC centers around 
finals which account for a large percent- 
age of the student's grade, and examina- 
tions which are too closely scheduled. 

Why should a final that only covers 
material since the last test count forty 
per cent of the student's grade? In some 
courses, the final counts for nearly all the 
grade. The forty per cent final gives the 
student a last chance to cram to pass the 
course. Too many students depend on this 
last spurt instead of working steadily 
throughout the semester. 

The second area of controversy is the 
student's final examination schedule. The 
grades of students that have had their 
finals scheduled over a short period of 
time have suffered. This year as many as 
forty per cent of the freshmen men had 
four or five finals scheduled in the first 
three days. It is extremely unfair for 
freshmen who are taking finals here for 
the first time to be subjected to a schedule 
that would be overburdening even for 
experienced upperclassmen. 

My suggestion for an alternate method 
of testing would consist of equally 
weighted tests, each test being cumulative. 
There would be no final since the last 
test would cover all the material from the

Jiggerboard History Marks 

Fifty-Two Years Of Service 

What is Jiggerboard? As its official 
name implies, the Resident Women's Stu- 
dent Government Association is designed 
to help keep dorm life running smoothly 
in order to make it easier for a large 
group of girls to live together without 
friction or chaos. Although the faculty 
and administration of the college are 
ultimately responsible for controlling stu- 
dent conduct, they have designated various 
powers and responsibilities on campus 
life to student governing organizations 
such as RWSGA and the Men's Senate. 
Jiggerboard, in turn, with the approval of 
the faculty, establishes and administers 
rules and regulations pertaining to the 
many phases of dorm life. 

The Resident Women's Student Gov- 
ernment Association was formed in 1915. 
Sometime before 1930, it acquired the 
nickname "Jiggerboard" but no record 
has answered either how or why this 
name was given. 

On page 28 in the "L Book" of 1934- 
35, Jigger Board (sic) is defined as — "A 
place of refuge for old maids, widows, 
and good little girls." Although this def- 
inition may be quite facetious, today's 
LVC students probably entertain notions 
about the existence of RWSGA that are 
just as far-fetched. To some girls, the 
group's sole purpose on campus is to sit 
in the Jiggerboard room in Vickroy and 
think up new ways to make life difficult 
for the resident women. For others, the 
spirit of the Spanish Inquisition is brought 
to life when they imagine members dress- 
ed in odd costumes always ready and 
willing to distribute severe punishments. 

If these are your ideas of what Jigger- 
board is and what its purposes are, they 
are wrong and should be corrected. Ac- 
cording to notes from an interview with 
JoAnn Dill, president of RWSGA, these 
warped thoughts are examples of the poor 
relationship between the students and the 
governing association. Miss Dill believes 
that a great number of girls try to make 

by Ellen J. Bishop 

group of people. There are rules that one 
obeys for the benefit of all concerned in 
the dorm. 

Of course, there are always some rules 
that seem a little unnecessary but they 
would not have been included in the rule 
book if there were not good reasons for 
them. Every year, however, all of the 
rules and regulations are carefully re- 
viewed as to whether the reason for each 
one is still pertinent and essential. 

Rule changing is a long procedure, and 
Jiggerboard has gone out of its way to 
get the opinions of the girls on various 
topics. Questionnaires were sent out during 
the first semester of this year asking the 
residents' opinions about certain dorm 
responsibilities that have received some 

Open-end meetings are held to find out 
about any disagreements with the regula- 
tions. At one of the discussions last 
year, the fact that hall presidents are ap- 
pointed, rather than being elected, did 
not appear to be a major issue. However, 
it has again been brought to the board's 
attention. Since it is a constitutional ques- 
tion, careful study will be needed before 
a decision can be made. 

There is always the suggestion box in 
the lobby of the dining hall into which 
you can place your opinions on matters 
with which the group is associated. 

Probably the biggest question the girls 
would have now for Jiggerboard concerns 
the possibility of having the student per- 
missions changed. A committee of Jigger- 
board, which reports to the entire group, 
plans to present its recommendations 
about the permissions to a faculty com- 
mittee in early March. 

Miss Dill said that no information can 
presently be given on the exact permis- 
sions. She and the committee have spent 
an entire semester gathering, sorting, and 
compiling data from many sources before 
making any recommendations. But, Miss 
Dill can give some answers about the

Lebanon Valley College 
Receives $125,000 
From Estate 

A check in the amount of $53,000, 
representing the final distribution of the 
estate of the late Mrs. Maude S. Pugh, 
was turned over to Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege recently. Dr. Frederic Miller, presi- 
dent of the College, received the check 
from M. K. Huber, executor of the es- 

In January, 1965, Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege had received $72,000 from the estate, 
and the total of $125,000 represents the 
largest gift from an individual donor in 
the history of the College.

questionnaires distributed to the girls in 
early December. For the most part, the 
girls were sincere fair, and objective in 
rendering suggestions and ideas for 
change in the routines of dorm life (e.g. 
lock-up and permissions). 

The questionnaire showed that the vast 
majority of girls wanted lock-up to con- 
tinue as it presently is, and not to have 
the responsibility shifted to someone else.

Sinfonia Presents 
Jazz Performance 

"Come Fly" is the title of the annual 
Jazz Band concert this year. This concert 
will be held on Friday, February 17, at 
8:30 p.m. in Engle Hall. Tickets cost 
$1.25 for general admission and may 
be purchased from Scott Sharnetzka, Jan 
Wubbena or any other Sinfonian. 

Some of the selections to be included 
are Come Fly from which the title of the 
concert is derived, Second Suite for Con- 
cert Jazz Band, Almost Like Being In 
Love and Watermelon Man. These selec- 
tions are among the many designed to 
show the varied faces of jazz. 

Those participating in the band are 
Joe Foster, Frank Hoch, Jim Kain, Lou 
D'Augostine and Mike Campbell on saxo- 
phone; Scott Sharnetzka, Doug Wine- 
miller, Bill Shenenberger, Jeff Spangler 
and Mike Curley on trumpet; Jack 
Schwalm, Ron Heck, Brad Rentzel and 
Don Kitchell on trombone; and John 
Henry Blauch, Bob Sherman, and Tom 
Shonk on rhythm. The leader of this 
group is Rip Posten with Jack Schwalm 
acting as Sinfonia coordinator. 

To Jiggerboard's president, the biggest 
problems facing the organization are that 
the women are not willing to accept re- 
sponsibility and the fact that there must 
be someone who has the authority to en- 
force regulations to obtain the peace and 
order conducive to study. 

Every female resident student is a mem- 
ber of the governing body but most people 
are quite willing to keep their eyes and 
ears shut to the errors of others. Many 
girls find it hard to give demerits to 
friends. Somehow, a real friend can un- 
derstand that one must uphold certain 
private moral standards even if it means 
giving demerits to another girl. 

Once a girl has accumulated a certain 
amount of demerits, she is required to 
appear before the board for punishment. 
There are some people who do not think 
that the decisions given are fair, but they 
seem to forget that each case is unique. 
The total number of demerits has been 
obtained in various ways and under dif- 
ferent circumstances. 

Important in determining a just punish- 
ment is the attempt to make the penalty 
fit the mistake and fit the girl who made 
it. To a student who uses only two or three 
one-o'clock permissions a semester, the 
loss of a few of them would not be as 
much a punishment as it would be to a 
girl who uses all of her regular permis- 
sions and then attempts to obtain special 

A student's obligations, if they are 
important ones, to campus activities are 
taken into consideration. After careful 
deliberation on all of these points, a ver- 
dict is reached and the girl is told of the 

How effective has the governing or- 
ganization been? To its president, it has, 
on the whole, done its job. There are 
things which hinder it from operating 
effectively such as the fact that not all of 
the elected members really want to serve 
on Jiggerboard. Miss Dill hopes that in

the future, the nominees will be asked 
before the election if they wish to and 
will be on the board. 

It needs to be stressed that Jiggerboard 
is not "waving a sword over the kids' 
throats." College must stimulate the stu 
dents' minds and a governing system is 
essential in providing the necessary 
atmosphere to aid studying. Jo Ann Dill 
would like to see many of the "common 
sense" rules eliminated, but they must 
remain so long as people continue to per- 
form erroneous deeds unless there is a 
specific rule, with an accompanying 
punishment, to forbid it

The 1967 Concert Choir 

Annual Choir Tour 
To Open Today 

The members of the Lebanon Valley College Concert Choir will be 
leaving on Friday, February 24, for the thirty-first annual tour. The tour,

The first section contains sacred music 
which captures the sincere Christian style 
of the earlier schools of composition. 

Dr. Hunter Compares 
India-China Economics 

The Lebanon Valley College Econom- 
ics Series, sponsored by the Department 
of Economics and Business Administra- 
tion, will present Dr. Holland Hunter on 
Thursday, March 2, 1967, at 7:30 p.m. 
in the Lecture Hall of the college Cha- 

Dr. Hunter, chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Economics at Haverford College, 
will speak on the topic, "India versus 
China — Who's Ahead?" In his discus- 
sion, he will study and compare eco- 
nomic growth between India and Com- 
munist China. 

In addition to his formal presentation 
in the eveining, Dr. Hunter will give an 
informal discussion on economics at 2:30 
P-m., March 2, 1967, in the Economics 
Lecture Room, Room 105, Lynch Mem- 
orial Building. 

Dr. Hunter was educated at Haverford 
College from which he received his Bach- 
elor of Science Degree. He studied at 
Harvard University and received his Mas- 
ters and Doctorate from that university. 

His teaching experience has included 
a post at Harvard University as a teach- 
ing fellow, and since 1948, he has been 
a member of the Haverford College fac- 
ulty. Dr. Hunter is a member of several 
boards of directors, and has been a con-

r «search trips sponsored by the Carnegie 
Corporation and the Guggenheim Foun- 

Dr. Hunter has worked in government 
Posts as a requirement and price analyst 
and is the author of numerous articles 
a ud books in his field of interest. 

The second section, performed with a 
chamber orchestra, consists of Schubert's 
Mass in G. The soloists for the mass are 
Kathleen Krickory, soprano, Carol Paist, 
soprano, Dennis Brown, tenor, and Jack 
Schwalm, baritone. The final portion of 
the program is of a more contemporary 
vein, featuring works by William Schu- 
man, Professor Lanese and Ernest Loch. 

After a short period of rest the choir 
will present the tour program on Tuesday, 
March 14, 1967 in the annual campus 
concert. By popular request the Vaughan 
Williams "O Clap Your Hands," accom- 
panied by organ, brass and percussion 
will be included in the program. This 
work was performed last October by the 
choir on the occasion of the dedication 
of the new chapel. 

This year's concert will be presented 
in the College Chapel, where the choir 
will have the opportunity to sing in an 
environment of excellent acoustics. With 
improved seating facilities, the choir 
cordially invites the support of the stu- 
dent body and the public. 

The Annual Campus Concert is pre- 
sented for the benefit of the Lebanon

LVC Announces 
Great Artist Series 

In a cooperative venture with Elizabethtown College and the Hershey 
Educational and Cultural Center, Lebanon Valley College will sponsor a 
Great Artist Series beginning in the fall of 1967. All performances will be 
held at the Hershey Community Theater, and all will be free to Lebanon 
Valley students. 

The artists who will be performing for the 1967-1968 series are the 
Roger Wagner Chorale on October 27, the Chicago Symphony on Novem- 
ber 17, and distinguished violinist Nathan Milstein on March 1, 1968. 

This program is an attempt by the school to offer the students and 
faculty a high level of talent that will be accessible to all. Students will 
receive tickets free of charge and those who do not have access to private 
transportation will be bussed to the theater at the school's expense. 
Dr. Earl Mezoff, a vice president of 

the college, in presenting this news to the 
Faculty-Student Council meeting, Mon- 
day, also mentioned some of the talent 
now under consideration for the 1968- 
1969 series. The Boston or Cincinnati 

Professors Discuss 
The Next Century 

The Centennial Symposium and Con- 
vocation, April 6-8, will attempt to 
create a true community of scholars, ir- 
respective of age, position, or degrees. 
The group discussions as well as the 
meals will provide excellent opportunity 
for students to get to know their dis- 
ciplines and to meet some of the leading 
scholars in their fields. 

Thursday, three distinguished scholars 
will present "The Next Century: Crisis 
and Opportunity" from the viewpoint of 
their respective disciplines. Dr. Huston 
Smith, Professor of Philosophy at Mas- 
sachusetts Institute of Technology, repre- 
senting the humanities, and Dr. Charles 
Price, University Professor of Chemistry 
at the University of Pennsylvania, repre- 
senting the natural sciences will present 
their views in the afternoon. Dr. Kenneth 
Boulding, Professor of Economics at the 
University of Michigan, will represent 
the view of the social sciences that even- 

Friday morning discussion groups will 
be organized in the three academic areas 
to debate how the topic fits within their 
discipline and to draft questions for the 
panel discussion that afternoon. 

The panel, combining the three sym- 
posium speakers, will attempt to answer 
the questions and draw some conclusions 
on the topics. 

Theodore Ullman, a brilliant pianist, 
will present a recital that evening. 

The Convocation will take place Satur- 
day, April 8. Dr. Henry S. Commanger, 
Spranza lecturer and Professor of History 
at Amherst College will present the topic 
he has chosen for the final day of the 
Centennial celebration in the Chapel. 

Students are urged to send in the reply 
card part of the invitation if they wish to 
attend the Convocation. Admission to the 
Chapel will be by ticket only. 

The snowstorm wasn't quite enough to warrant canceling classes, but it made it 
rather difficult for the faculty to park, or even get here. 

Symphony Orchestras, Van Cliburn, the 
Julliard String Quartet, the Robert Shaw 
Corale, the Cassadesus piano trio, and the 
Vienna Boys Choir were among those 
selected for consideration. 

Dr. Mezoff also suggested that the 
Faculty-Student Council appoint a com- 
mittee to work with faculty committee on 
the busing of students who do not have 
their own means of transportation. 

"This is quite an undertaking," said Dr. 
Mezoff. "I have long felt the need for 
something of this sort at Lebanon Valley, 
and now that it is an accomplished fact, 
I hope that it will be a success."

Shay To Have Article 
Published In Magazine 

Dr. Ralph S. Shay has been requested 
to grant permission for the publication 
and distribution of a paper which he read 
at the recent meeting of the Chinese Lan- 
guage Teachers Association in New York 
City on December 30. 

The request was made of Dr. Shay by 
the Center for Applied Linguistics, Wash- 
ington, D.C., which serves as one of 
twelve Educational Research Information 
Center (ERIC) Clearinghouses throughout 
the country under agreement with the 
United States Office of Education, Divi- 
sion of Research Training and Dissemina- 
tion, Bureau of Research. These clearing- 
houses, each focused on a separate sub- 
ject-matter area, seek to collect, catalog, 
abstract, index, reproduce, and dissemi- 
nate the results of educational research 
and research-related materials to a wide 
variety of audiences: teachers, adminis- 
trators, other education specialists, re- 
searchers, public officials, commercial and 
industrial organizations, and the public. 

In his paper, Dr. Shay endeavored to 
answer the questions of (1) whether and 
to what extent might college students in 
general and college students of Chinese 
culture profit from language study; (2) 
which students should be encouraged to 
take up Chinese language study; (3) should 
a small college attempt to teach the Chi- 
nese language; (4) if so, what, if anything, 
might be gained; (5) how might the Chi- 
iese language teacher and the Chinese 
culture teacher cooperate with one an- 

Professor Shay has also been informed 
that this paper is being considered for 
publication in the The Journal of the 
Chinese Language Teachers Association. 

In addition to the Chinese language 
publication, Dr. Shay has been appointed 
co-chairman of the membership commit- 
tee of the Pennsylvania Historical Asso- 
ciation. In this capacity, Professor Shay 
will be responsible for the supervision of 
the continuing membership campaign of 
the association in 32 counties comprising 
six regions in the east-central and eastern 
portions of the state. 

Dr. Shay was chosen for this assign- 
ment because of his successful efforts in 
the membership campaign of the state 
association in Lebanon County in 1966. 
Local membership in this association more 
than tripled through his initiative last

La Vie Collegienne, February 24, 1967 

La Vie Inquires 

Can A Dance? 

by Bobbie Gable 

Events on this campus are not known for their 
large attendance. The now extinct artist series and art 
film series are only two of the many activities which 
were dropped because of lack of support. 

Paradoxically students are often heard complain- 
ing that there is nothing to do on campus. 

A quick glance at the calendar for the week indi- 
cates that there certainly are many things going on. 
This week, in addition to various club meetings and 
practices, there are several basketball games, a wrest- 
ling match, two films and a recital. Last week there 
were Faculty Firesides, an Honor's Tea, two concerts and a recital, several 
open houses, basketball games and wrestling matches, and no less than 
fifteen club meetings. 

Yet these activites go unattended while students continue to gripe. 
Why? What is the problem? And what is the solution? 
Below are the opinions of some students on this subject. 
Jon Rogers: Many improvements are 
needed to make this an exciting and a 
unified campus. I'm sure that this new 
concept has taken you aback, but it's true. 

Dances have had such small attendance 
and such poor atmosphere for dancing. 
The groups are generally below par and it 
is a fact that the band makes the dance. 
If a little more money were put into a 
band, say $100 or so, it would add a little 
more excitement to the dance. Maybe 
one big dance could be held every month 
and the band would be a good, popular, 
local group. The other dances could use 
only records for music. The dances should 
be held in the small gym instead of the 
larger gym, because it would make the 
place look crowded and it's more fun to 
dance in a crowded room. 

Movies are a problem. Would you like 
to sit in the back row of an auditorium 
and watch a T.V. whose speakers are 
turned way down and stuffed with 
crumpled cellophane paper? If so and if 
you like coming early to a movie, come 
to an 8:00 showing at 8:30 and you will 
have a good wait while someone demon- 
strates how to fix a perpetually broken 

The announcements made at dinner 
about clubs might as well not even be 
given because they give no idea at all 
about what the movie, discussion, or 
lecture will be about. 

I don't see how we can complain about 
having nothing to do on weekends. Why, 
we have homework to do that we couldn't 
do during the week because of all the 
things for us to do during the week, like 
swimming in Lebanon, bowling in Palmy- 
ra, and it takes us freshmen a while to 
hitch-hike to these far away activities. 

At present, this school is too divided, 
too conservative, too slow, too unim- 
aginative, and unwilling to change for the 
students to even want to become a close- 
knit group, working to make this a better 
place. The up and coming coffee house 
will need everyone's support or this at- 
tempt to reunify the school will be a mis- 
erable failure. 

A Complaintant: Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege is one big farce; the administration 
is entirely too conservative. True, this 
is a Christian college, but false, this is not 
a nursery. The administration severely 
limits the type of activity allowed on 

campus, and all the red tape which has to 
be overcome is rather discouraging to 
those sponsoring the affair. This limited 
activity leads to off-campus activities and 
to the Friday rush home — and thus no 
attendance at campus affairs. 

Many couples leave Valley's campus to 
get away from the limited permissions of 
the resident women, which is controlled 
by the faculty. I must admit, however, 
that the faculty does support the campus 
affairs and is willing to chaperon the 
affairs (which is a large improvement 
over the administration). 

And now for the students — on whom 
most of the blame for Valley's lack of 
social activities may fall. Valley students 
are full of complaints and no action. 
Many complain about Valley's social life 
but are not willing to remedy the situ- 
ation. Many of the dances on campus are 
farces simply because the number one 
complainer is the number one wallflower. 

And here I am, a typical Valley stu- 
dent — "complaints, complaints and no 
action" — and what else is new on this 

Joan Weber: Not only on the LVC 
campus, but in all walks of life, people 
are becoming less and less involved in 
anything. Around the LVC campus one 
often hears such comments as "It's so 
dead around here," or "What's there to do 
at LVC?" There are plenty of acvtivities 
scheduled, but how many people care to 
put any effort into anything? I think this 
lack of effort and initiative also carry 
over into our studies. Some students are 
more concerned with criticizing and con- 
demning the professors and their ways 
than they are in learning the subject 
matter and learning to think independ- 
ently. A course can be as good as one 
makes it or as bad as one makes it. The 
dances, open houses, movies, panel dis- 
cussions, speakers, sports events, are all 
opportunities for the students of LVC to 
get more involved in the life of the cam- 
pus. It is true that the LVC "campus" 
exits. It is not living as such, but if 
people exist on the campus and it does 
not come alive, then those people must 
not be living. An old but wise saying is 
"You only get out of something that 
which you put into it." What do we ex-

CampuA Scene 

Dear Bull Phrog: 

Wasn't that snow storm we had a few 
weeks ago really great? It certainly was a 
thrill to go to classes in the middle of the 
howling snowstorm in the morning, only 
to find that after the storm had stopped 
in the afternoon, classes were suspended. 

You can imagine how happy I was to 
hear on the radio that the ONLY school 
on the East Coast open on Tuesday was 
LVC. However, the announcement about 
school being open was a little confusing. 
The announcer said that commuters who 
could not get through the storm would be 
given official excuses. Did that mean that 
the school excused the commuters who 
weren't at class from being responsible for 
the lecture notes they missed?? 

The snow also had some far-reaching 
effects. This past week has been unparal- 
leled for variety in the luncheon menu. 
For example, instead of just having apple 
fritters, we could choose to have peach 
fritters too! In appreciation of this ges- 
ture, several students sent their insults to 
the chef. 

Given the lunches we have been served 
this past week, I'm beginning to believe 
that somebody got confused and started 
Religious Emphasis Week early. Since we 
are in Lent, many people feel that they 
should give up something they like until 
Easter. But I think the dining hall staff 
went a little too far when it decided that 
we students should give up lunch. 

Speaking of religious emphasis, some 
comedians in school are beginning to 
call our weekly chapel services "Exercises 
in Religious Toleration." Many of these 
students have contests to see how long 
they can tolerate the lecturer. The per- 
son who loses the general train of thought 
before the speaker does is out of the con- 
test. The average time for the successful 
completion of this contest is five minutes. 
The rest of the time can be spent trying 
to count the number of faculty who have 
voluntarily felt the need for such en- 

The message of last week's inspiring 
service was in the form of a verbal Val- 
entine's Day card. Copies of it are now 
available in book form at the bookstore. 
I'll buy one and send it to you. 

So long for now.

The LVC Psi Chi Chapter (National 
Honor Society in Psychology) would like 
to express its sincere thanks to those Leb- 
anon Valley students who attended a 
Valentine dance and party at the V.A. 
Hospital in Lebanon. The patients very 

Action . . . Now 

If the "Vigil for Peace in Vietnam" and the "Let's Back Our Boys in 
Vietnam" groups showed anything, they brought out clearly the fact that 
the majority of us at Lebanon Valley College are too concerned with our- 
selves to be bothered by the events which surround us. From the attend- 
ance at both groups, it would seem that only thirty out of a student popula- 
tion of about 825 had any feelings at all about the conflict in Vietnam. 

It is the opinion of this editor that the students of this college have 
the ability to act on situations that concern them, but although they pri- 
vately disapprove of certain conditions here, they will not organize into an 
effective group to attempt to solve their problems. 

Let us take a few examples. Of the 55 freshmen who found that they 
would be taking either four or five days of the examination period, did any 
of them think to take some decisive action, as a group, to complain about 
their unfair and objectionable plight? 

The entire student body at one time or another, sits through Chapel 
services which, week after week, often seem to vie with each other for 
utter dullness. Yet, have we ever bothered to act as a group to suggest 
improvements and voice our dissatisfaction? Isn't it at all irritating to find 
that there are often not enough faculty members around to collect the at- 
tendance slips? 

How many of the two hundred students who must sit in front of a 
television set to take lecture notes feel that they are really participating in 
a meaningful learning experience in a small college atmosphere? How many 
ever thought to question this innovation as a group? 

Every resident student pays $500 per year for board. Yet, lunches 
this past week bordered on being inedible. Tables were filled with piles of 
uneaten food — usually for good reason. Did it ever occur to any of us that 
as a group we could get some improvements in our diet? 

The Dining Hall Committee is powerless to act in our behalf because 
no one bothers to register his complaints with any of the members. Is it 
really more satisfying to return to our rooms and joke about the food than 
it is to complain in writing to the committee? 

Disapproval of all the above conditions has previously been voiced in 
this newpaper. Yet, the administration has not seen fit to reply to the 
allegations which have been made. 

Are the students to infer from this inaction that the administration 
does not feel that the students have legitimate grievances, or what is worse, 
that the administration does not have the time or inclination to deal 
with them? 

The "Letters to the Editor" column is, and always has been, available 
for student and faculty comment. Unsigned letters will not be printed, but 
the names on signed letters can be withheld upon request. This outlet is 
surely one means for voicing opinion about the present situation. 

It is time for the students to join under responsible leadership and 
collectively try to solve the problems they face. There is "no time like the 
present." — P.P. 

much appreciated the concern and in- 
terest expressed by those students in com- 
ing to talk and dance with them, and 
many of the students found it an interest- 
ing and rewarding experience as well. 

Psi Chi would like to encourage fur- 
ther visits to the hospital in the future. 
Anyone who would be interested in taking 
part in some activity related to the hos- 
pital, or helping the Psychology Club to 
sponsor one, is urged to contact either 
Helaine Hopkins, Psi Chi president, or Dr. 
Magee in the Psychology department. 

Dr. Tomaszchewski, who teaches ado- 
lescent psychology in night school at LVC, 
is also a psychologist at the hospital and 
has indicated that he would be glad to 
see more mutually beneficial connections 

between the college and the hospital. 
Life in a large institutions like the V.A. 
Hospital can be extremely dull and de- 
pressing for its inmates, and any change 
in pace, especially a chance to meet and 
talk with new people, could turn out to 
be wonderful therapy. This opportunity 
is not limited to psychology students 
only — students of all majors are welcome 
to participate. 

The Psychology Club would also like 
to offer many thanks to Ellen Bishop for 
her creation of a very imaginative and 
enjoyable miniature golf course as one of 
the attractions the club was able to offer 
at the Country Fair. It was Ellen's orig- 
inal idea and its success is very much due 
to her efforts.

Sam Willman is clearly on top of the wrestling situation, as usual. The LVC 
team defeated Ursinus, 28-8. 

Dutch Flier 

by Will Lamont 

The 1966-67 Lebanon Valley College wrestling team, coached by 
Mr. Jerry Petrofes and captained by Sam Willman, has continued its win- 
ning ways. The team is now 8 and 3 on the season with only Muhlenberg 
left on the schedule. This match will be home at 2:00 this Saturday. 

The result of the Western Maryland meet was Lebanon Valley 28, 
Western Maryland 8. The Dutchmen wrestlers crushed the Mary landers 
in all but two of the weight classes. The meet started off with Archie 
Laughead getting a 6-0 win over his opponent. At 130 Bud Kaufmann 
beat his man 10-0. Sam Willman continued his unbeaten record with an 
11-4 win over his man at 137 lbs. At 145 Joe Hovetter put his man away 
with a 9-3 decision. Next came Kerry Althouse with the only pin for the 
Valley team in 4 min. 12 sec. At 160 Steve Barbaccia was pinned by his 
opponent in 1:26. Following Steve came Harry "Lump" Wertsch with 
a 10-0 loss to his man. Rich Basta at 177 lbs. contributed 3 points to the 
winning way with an 8-3 decision over his man. At heavyweight Jack 
Howie pulled a 4-3 win over his opponent. The result of these fine efforts 
resulted in a crushing victory for the Flying Dutchmen matmen. 

The Dickinson meet proved to be a hair-raiser for anyone who attend- 
ed. Archie Laughead wrestled a fine match at 123 lbs. and ended in a 2-2 
draw with his man. At 130 lb. Bud Kaufmann in his fine style gained an 
11-0 decision over his man. Bud had now scored 21 points to for his 
opponents in his last two matches. Next came Sam Willman. Sam fought 
to an 8-0 win over his Red Devil opponent. At 145 Joe Hovetter wrestled 
a fine match against another superb freshman from Dickinson. The result 
was a draw 4-4 and 2 points awarded to each team. Kerry Althouse came 
on at 152 in a great match and went on to win 6-3. Joe Torre won an 
excellent match against one of the tougher Dickinson matman 8-6. Jack 
Howie 177 lb. missed winning his match in the final second when the 
referee awarded a reversal to his opponent. This resulted in a draw of 9-9. 

The final score was LV 18, Dickinson 12. This was the first time in 
10 years that Lebanon Valley has beaten Dickinson. 

Next came Ursinus which the Valley had never beaten before and 
was up for its first over this team. Archie Laughead at 123 lbs. was 
pitted against one of the tougher Ursinus matmen and even though Archie 
gave him a run he came out on the short end of the score 6-4. Bud Kauf- 
mann wrestled another excellent match and gained a 10-0 win over his 
opponent at 130 lb. Bud in his last three matches has scored 31 points 
to his opponent's 0. Next came Sam Willman bent on keeping his unbeaten 
record unblemished. He did this in fine style by pinning his man in a 4:05. 
At 145 Rich Kaufmann lost to a tough opponent by a pin at 5:39 in the 
match. At 152 Kerry Althouse sensing victory, decided he was going to 
get a pin, which he did, and at 6:01 he put his man away and added a big 
five points to the team score. At 160 Joe Torre fought to a 4-4 draw in a 
good match and added 2 points to the team score. "Lump" Wertsch finally 
came into his own at 5:26 in his 167 lb. match by pinning his opponent 
and giving another big 5 to the team points. At 177 lb. Rich Basta decided 
to follow his teammates and pinned his man in 1:14. He pushed the score 
up another 5 points toward victory. At heavyweight Jack Howie wrestled 
his big man and beat him well in an 8-4 decision adding 3 points to the 
score. The first victory over the Ursinus team was LV 28, Ursinus 8. 

Last Saturday the LV matmen journeyed to Juniata. This proved to 
be a very poor and despairing day for the Valley grapplers. The final score 
was LV 13 and Juniata 19, but this does not tell the full story. 

The match started with Archie Laughead wrestling a good match 
against his opponent but losing 4-0. Next at 130 lb. came Bud Kaufmann 
with another fine wrestling performance and a win of 6-2. At 137 lb. 
Sam Willman fought his opponent to a 19-6 win. Joe Hovetter, recuperat- 
ing from a heel injury, lost a tough decision to his man by a score of 5-3. 
Wrestling at 152, Kerry Althouse, although giving his best, lost to his 
opponent 6-0. Joe Torre wrestled his man to a draw. At 167 " Lum P 
Wertsch lost on a reversal and riding time to his man in a decision of 4-0. 
In the next match Rich Basta pinned his man. 

The score was now LV 13, Juniata 14. In the heavyweight match 
J ack Howie was pitted against a heavier opponent and although he was 
Winning in part of the match he was trapped on his back and pinned m 
6 '-l4 of the match. Thus, the final score was 19-13 favor of Juniata. 

LVC Grapplers Close 
Their Best Season Ever 

Honors for Willman 
At Saturday Match 

Saturday will mark the close of the 
finest wrestling season in the history of 
Lebanon Valley College. Under the guid- 
ance of their fine coach, Jerry Petrofes, 
the Flying Dutchmen have compiled an 
8-3 mark and will be favored over visiting 
Muhlenberg. Lebanon Valley won last 
year's match, 27-8. 

Not only will Saturday's match bring to 
a close the 1966-67 season, but it will also 
ring down the final regular season mat 
competition for the finest individual wrest- 
ler in Lebanon Valley's history — Sam 
Willman, a senior in the 137 lb. weight 
division. Willman holds every individual 
wrestling record on the campus. Although 
his style is sometimes unorthodox, he is 
an exciting wrestler to watch. The fans 
are always clamoring for a pin when it is 
Willman's turn to wrestle. 

Dave Mahler was the "talk of the 
campus" during the 1961-65 wrestling 
seasons, and held all school records until 

The individual points so far for the 

wrestlers are: 





















B. Kaufmann 13 

Willman appeared. Mahler placed second 
in the MAC championships during 1965 
and also placed fifth in the NCAA College 
Division finals that same year. This is 
what Willman is shooting for this season 
as his collegiate career draws to a close 

Coach Petrofes keeps insisting that all 
the credit should go to the boys for the 
tremendous outcome of this season. How 






Dutch Gals Finish 
Season This Week 

The Lebanon Valley girls basketball 
team has accumulated an even record of 
3-3 on the sports scene thus far in the 
season. They have two remaining games 
with Messiah and Muhlenberg on Tues- 
day and Thursday of this week. 

To begin the season, the girls met with 
Harrisburg Polyclinic here and started 
their drive by beating the nurses 54-43. 
In this contest the two hot shots for the 
Valley were Maripat Smith with 28 points 
and Bobbie Macaw with 18. In their next 
outings the Dutch Gals found themselves 
on the short end of the rope when they 
dropped a 35-41 decision to E-Town. In

Intramural Scene 

The intramural program is moving for- 
ward with volleyball and swimming now 
completed. The team results in volleyball 
are: Knights 12 points, Kalo 4, Frosh — A

Swimming was run last Thursday, Feb 
ruary 16, at the Lebanon YMCA pool. 
The individual winners and the team 
scores are as follows:

C. Sabold— Kalo 
The team results are: Residents 12

The completion of these two sports 
brings about a new Supremacy Trophy 
team standings. The standings are now 
Knights 50 points, Residents 42, Kalo 35 
Philo 30, Frosh— A 13, Sinfonia 7, and 
Frosh— B 5. 

Bowling and badminton should be fin 
ished by the next issue and the results 
of these sports and the new team stand 
ings will be given at that time. The 
bowling standings at this moment are 
Residents, Kalo and Sinfonia (tie), 
Knights, Frosh A, Philo, and Frosh B. 

ever, those who are close to the mat 
squad this season know that coach Pet- 
rofes has also been responsible for the 
team's output. Remembering the miser- 
able performance at the beginning of the 
season when Lebanon Valley hosted a 
quadrangular scrimmage among Eliza- 
bethtown, Bucknell, Swarthmore, and the 
Flying Dutchmen, and won only three of 
40 matches, and compare that perform- 
ance with the way the wrestlers are now 
performing, it is not hard to see the hard 
work and effort on the part of both team 
and coach have paid off handsomely. 

This year Sam Willman has compiled a 
perfect 11-0 record, including four pins. 
He also has 24 consecutive victories dur- 
ing the regular season matches, has the 
best dual meet record for four years 
(35-5-2), most career team points (144), 
most falls in one season (6), most career 
falls (19), best accumulative record for 
four year;} (39-9-2), and also has never 
missed a dual meet or accepted a forefit 
in four years. 

Willman will be honored upon the 
completion of Saturday's match. 

Athletic Dept. 
Announces New 
Award System 

Director of athletics William McHenry 
has announced the new varsity award sys- 
tem. A committee to review the system 
was appointed which heard reports from 
coaches, various leaders of teams, and 
several representatives of the Varsity L 
Club. The committee was concerned with 
three major aspects: 

1. The philosophy of an award sys- 

2. The requirements to be met in each 
sport by a participant (athletic and stu- 
dent manager). 

3. The style of the award to be re- 
ceived by a participant each time he 
earns an award. 

The following criteria will be employed 
by the head coaches of male intercolle- 
giate athletics in preparing annual recom- 
mendations to the director of athletics 
for men for the granting of awards: 

1 . Participation 

A. Basketball — participation in more 
than one half the total number of halves 
of games played in the season, one entry 
in a half being considered participation 
in the half. 

B. Football — participation in more 
than one half of the total number of 
quarters of games played in the season, 
one entry in the half rule again. 

C. Lacrosse — participation in more 
than one half of the total number of 
quarters of games played in the season, 
one entry rule again. 

D. Cross-country — placing in more 
than one half of the meets, places 1-7. 

E. Golf — participation in more than 
one half of the matches. 

F. Track — placing in more than one

Simpson's Scoring Leads 
Valley Team To Victory 
In Many Cage Contests 

To review varsity basketball we have 
to go back to Tuesday, February 7, when 
the Flying Dutchmen were host to Frank- 
lin and Marshall. The game was a well- 
fought battle and the victor wasn't de- 
cided until the last few seconds. The 
Flying Dutchmen left the court with an 
82 to 79 victory. The team was led by 
Simpson who had an amazing 30 points. 
Stauffer added 18 points to the attack, 
while Atkinson featured with 1 1 points. 

The team then took to the road for the 
next three outings. The first opponent was 
Washington College on February 9. De- 
spite the extra desire by the team and a 
well-balanced attack, Lebanon Valley went 
down to a 77-68 defeat. Billmeyer and 
Simpson led the team in scoring with 
seventeen points each. Atkinson added an 
additional 13 points while Todd scored 
11 points to round out the majority of 
the scoring. 

February 11, Lebanon Valley journey- 
ed to Muhlenberg for a Saturday after- 
noon contest. Muhlenberg proved to be 
too strong for the Dutchmen and handed 
them a 104 to 85 loss. The score indi- 

cates that the contest was a fast moving 
affair as well as a high scoring one. 
Simpson led the Dutchmen with 26 points. 
Contributing to the Valley's score were 
Atkinson with 25 points, Billmeyer with 
18, Todd and Decker with 5 each, Stauffer 
with 3, Dottolo with 2, and Moyer with 

Dickinson was the next contest as well 
as a return meeting between the two col- 
leges. In the first contest Lebanon Valley 
scored a 93-75 victory. In the second 
meeting, February 13, Lebanon Valley 
scored another victory 71-66. Unlike the 
first game, the Flying Dutchmen exper- 
ienced a harder battle. The winner of this 
contest was still in doubt until the closing 
seconds when Valley put it out of reach. 
For the Valley, Billmeyer and Simpson 
each scored 16 points while Stauffer add- 
ed an additional 15 points. Atkinson and 
Decker each scored 8, while Todd and 
Moyer rounded out the scoring with 6 
and 2 points, respectively. 

Last Saturday, February 18, the Leb- 
anon Valley basketball team was host to 
P.M.C. Like most of Valley's games this 
year, the contest was a close one. How- 
ever, P.M.C. built up a large enough lead 
to get the victory. The final score of the 
contest was 76-65. Simpson led Valley 
with 21 points while Billmeyer added 20 

Pat Simpson (32) and Bromley Billmeyer (34) combine to try to stop the PMC 
advance. Their work was not enough — Valley lost, 76-65.

Maripat Smith shoots against Moravian 


(Continued from Page 3) 

the former contest, Maripat Smith hit the 
nets with 13 points and the latter found 
three team members in double figures, 
Maripat Smith with 16, Rita Rice with 
11 and captain Julia Looker with 10. 

Lebanon Valley then turned on the 
heat in the next match by handing Al- 
bright a 49-26 defeat. Maripat Smith, 
Rita Rice and Bobbie Macaw all double 
figured for the cause. The tide again 
changed for LV and even Maripat 
Smith's 18 point effort could not combat 
the 47-34 defeat at the hands of Ship- 
pensburg. However, the Dutch Gals 
found themselves again and cruised to a 
46-29 victory over Moravian. In this last 
encounter Maripat Smith was the pump 
for Valley, scoring as many points for 
Valley as the entire Moravian team scored 
in the contest — 29 points. 

Maripat Smith has been the consistent 
high scorer for the Valley with an aver- 
age of 20.5 points per game. Next comes 
Bobbie Macaw with a 9.0 average and 
Julia Looker with a 7.0 average. The rest 
of the Valley squad is composed of Rita 
Rice, Lucille Koch, Sue Jones, Janet Hill, 
Cynthia Melman, Janice Shuster, Mary 
Jane Lentz, Carolyn Thompson, Jo Ann 
Yeagley, Bobbie Harro, Lois Bosland, 
Cindy Black, Barb McCann, and Judy

The Sleeping City 

By Howard Moffett 
The Collegiate Press Service 

Saigon (CPS) — Saigon is probably the world's most relaxed center of 
intrigue, violence and war. It doesn't seem like a city under seige. 

Sloe-eyed will-o'-wisp girls dressed in soft slit ao dai's and spiked 
heels walk narrow boulevards overhung with green elms or tropical 

In the market old men squat on the curb over a game of Chinese 
chess. Their women are nearby, chewing betel nut, grinning and spitting 
the juice through red-stained teeth. 

At the Cercle Sportif, Vietnamese and European girls lounge in 
bikinis beside the pool, while wealthy white-clad warriors shoot tennis 
balls at each other on beautifully groomed courts. 

In low-slung French colonial office buildings, civil servants who have 
kept papers moving for nine governments in three years go on stamping 
and filing, conversing in French on difficult bureaucratic questions, and 
drinking tea. 

The university opens a month late, and even then no one seems to 
know the exact date until one day classes break out. 

Young women and middle-aged men wear silk or cotton pajamas 
much of the day. It does save time, because from 12 to 3 in the afternoon 
the city shuts down and people sleep. 

Newcomers often baffled by the casual air that hangs over much 
of Saigon. "I thought there was a war going on here," one five-day veteran 
said recently. 

Saigon is hot and muggy. It is also a place where war is no longer 
an emergency condition but the normal state of things. A certain percent- 
age of the population has been engaged in killing as a profession for many 
years, and the tendency has been to turn it into a nine-to-five job. A nine- 
to-five job loses its excitement after a while. 

More than anything, Saigon is a tentative, uncertain city, a city on the 
defensive against force — against the military, against the Americans, and 
against the Viet Cong. If there is a universal mood here, it is the urge to 
protect and cling to what little culture and happiness and peace can be sal- 
vaged from the war, from the well-meaning but rough and free-spending 
American troops, and from infiltrating terrorists. 

The faces of the people tell you nothing. 
Little children are often quick to smile 
and say "Hello, O.K." Older people sel- 
dom either smile or scowl and teen-agers 
and young adults sometimes seem as im- 
passive or inscrutable as their parents. 

A visitor would guess that, except for 
those who are making a living off them, 
Vietnamese in Saigon do not particularly 
care for Americans but are waiting to see 
if they are going to win. One senses that 
this is still an open question, and that 
no one is in a hurry to predict the answer. 

No city can completely normalize war. 
Tempers grow short, psychological tens- 
ions mount, and there is no place to go. 
A quiet drive in the country would be 
impossible even if you had a car. 

You notice that the American official 
getting out of his sedan with gold bag 
in hand, goes into a hotel whose entrance 
is sand-bagged and guarded by a GI, like 
any other of the scores of American mili- 
tary billets in Saigon. 

You notice the barbed wire surrounding 
the headquarters of the Military Directory 
at Gia Long Palace and the Prime Minis- 
ter's office on Thong Nhut. 

You read every once in a while of a 
taxi driver wounded by a GI sentry, alert 
for terrorists, who shot too quickly when 
the taxi broke down in front of his billet. 

Between 12 and 4 in the morning, the 
streets are quiet except for an occasional

Night in Saigon belongs to the police. 
During curfew, they move through each

Valley Names Dr. Shay 
As Assistant To Dean 

Dr. Ralph S. Shay, associate professor 
of history and Chairman of the Depart- 
ment of History and Political Science at 
Lebanon Valley College, has been named 
Assistant Dean of the College and Direc- 
tor of the Auxiliary Schools by Dr. Fred- 
eric K. Miller, President of the College. 

The position will be part-time and will 
be effective September 1, 1967. In his 
new position, Dr. Shay will work closely 
with Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, Vice President 
and Dean of the College. He will ad- 
minister the College's evening school and 
summer sessions, and will be responsible 
for Lebanon Valley's registration proced- 
ures at the University Center at Harris- 
burg. In addition, he will handle many 
of the administrative details now perform- 
ed by Dr. Ehrhart. 

Psychologist Starts 
Counseling Service 

A Psychological Counseling office has 
recently been established as an adjunct 
to the Department of Psychology and is 
located on the third floor of the Adminis- 
tration Building. A trained and experi- 
enced psychological counselor, Dr. Har- 
old C. Hollingsworth, will be available 
for a limited number of hours each week 
as part of his over-all teaching responsi- 
bility. The Psychological Counseling office 
is not meant to replace the counseling 
activities of the office of the student 
deans but rather to augment and com- 
plement them. 

This service is available to students 
desiring help in the solution of emotional 
problems, and in removing inner obstacles 
to optional personal growth. The student 
can bring to the counselor such problems 
as difficulties in studying, uncertainty 
about vocational choice, general self 
doubt, or just vague feelings of dissatis- 
faction and tension. 

Problems and disturbances such as 
these are by no means "abnormal" among 
college students and they need not be ac- 
cepted as unavoidable. They can usually 
be helped by increased self-awareness and 
self-knowledge, which is what counseling 
aims to achieve. Viewed in this light, 
the counseling service is clearly an auxi- 
liary to the overall educational enter- 
prise of the College, not merely a rescue 
operation. The primary aim of counsel- 
ing is the development of the student's 
own initiative and independent thinking. 

Full confidentiality is a necessary con- 
dition of pyschological counseling and 
safe-guarding it is a major concern of the 
counseling office. The following policies 
have been established to insure confiden- 
tiality: Students can contact the counsel- 
ing office directly, without any interme- 
diaries; all referrals to the office are on a 
voluntary basis; student's communcations 
are held in strict professional confidence, 
and so are the names of the students 
counseled; if any member of the College 
community wishes to help in finding the 
best way to handle the problem of a stu- 
dent about whom he is concerned, the 
Counseling office will provide an infor- 
mal consultation, but without disclosing 
whether or not the student discussed has 
been in counseling; if an outside agency — 
the family doctor, a psychiatrist, a clinic 

requests information about a student 
w ho is or has been in counseling, the 
office asks the agency to provide a "per- 
mission for release of information" signed 
b y the student. 

An occasional student will be found 
w ho se situation is such that college coun- 
seling appears inadvisable or insufficient. 
In this case the Psychological Counseling 
office is prepared to help the student and 
nis Parents make arrangements with an 
ff-campus psychiatrist or psycho-thera- 
P'st- The same service is offered the stu- 
dent who wishes to continue counseling 
w °rk started in the college office. 


The Kerr Controversy 

(ACP) — It is possible to write off the firing of Clark Kerr from the 
presidency of the University of California as just one more irresponsible 
political act in a state that has become a symbol of political irrationality. 

But to do this would be to miss the overwhelming significance of the 
action of the California regents. Kerr and Governor Ronald Reagan were 
engaged in a classic struggle of state university versus state government. 
And in one swift, totally unexpected move, government reigned supreme. 

While a faculty member at Berkeley in the early 1950's, Kerr estab- 
lished his liberality by fighting against the firing of colleagues who refused 
to sign loyalty oaths. Shortly thereafter, he was named chancellor of the 
Berkeley campus, and in 1958 was made president of the entire univer- 
sity system. 

Kerr was out of the country when the now-famous Free Speech Move- 
ment rebellion erupted at Berkeley in 1964. He subsequently took a strong 
hand against student lawlessness but refused to follow the bidding of some 
conservative regents who told him how to punish the "filthy demon- 

It is still not certain exactly what prompted the firing. Reagan 
had charged Kerr with politicking because of his support for incum- 
bent governor Pat Brown in the recent election. And there had been 
friction recently over Reagan's plans to 

cut the University's budget and charge 
tuition. Reagan had also sparked a dis- 
pute with his demand that Kerr "clean up 
the beatniks," referring to the student 
activist movement at Berkeley. 
What is certain is that the far-reaching

implications of the firing are political, no 
matter what the precipitating cause. Kerr 
has stated that the "University should 
serve truth, not political partnership." 
This strikes home particularly hard in a 
state-supported institution. 

Kerr's case demonstrates the precar- 
ious position of a university president. 
He must absorb pressures from above, 
from the monetary powers that keep his 
institution functioning. At the same time

Can a Fraternity 

Or a Sorority? 

by Bobbie Gable 

The position of social fraternities and sororities on a campus can 
range from that of near inactivity to being the complete social life of the 

The inactive groups have regular meetings, conduct pledging activi- 
ties, and perhaps sponsor a party or dance or a few fund-raising activities. 
The members feel no brotherhood or sisterhood, no special closeness to 
their fellow members as the purpose of the group would suggest. It is just 
another time consuming activity with compulsory attendance and dues to 
be paid. The members do their duty by coming, but few really enjoy it 
or enthusiastically support it. It is a dead group — moving, but of necessity 
rather than desire. 

In contrast are the groups which sponsor many activities and which 
are enthusiastically supported by the members. Attendance is because of 
interest, not duty. 

The second type of group is most often found on a large campus, 
perhaps for many reasons. First, with such vast numbers of students, a 
fraternity offers a chance for brotherhood, for close contact. At a small 
school, students know most of the other students and have an identity in- 
dependent of the fraternity. Second, at a large school, students are less 
likely to belong to many other groups (clubs, SCA, publication staffs, 
choirs, etc.) or if they do, these groups probably involve large numbers of 
people and membership is of a passive variety. The fraternity offers 
one of the few chances to be active in a relatively small group. On a small 
campus the situation is reversed. A large percentage of the campus is 
involved actively in departmental clubs, etc., which are small groups, 
sometimes smaller than a fraternity, and the interest in the fraternity is 
replaced by another activity. The last suggestion is that on a small campus 
with only local fraternities and sororities, the groups do not have the free- 
dom to plan the kinds of activities they want. Restrictions on activities 
dampens enthusiasm. On a large campus, freedom exists and success is 
more likely. 

Where LVC stands in this continuum 
is undoubtedly only opinion based on 
one's expectations and experiences. 

Below are the opinions of students on 
the values of fraternities and sororities 
on a small campus such as LVC. 

Chris McComsey: As a music major, 
I can see very little point in belonging to 
a social sorority. To me, they sponsor 
very little in the way of activities that 
cannot be attended even if you do not be- 
long to the sorority. True there are some 
things such as the Clio hoagie sale and 
the Delphian shoe shine that are beneficial 
to the campus, but on the whole, do 
these organizations sponsor any activities 
that are so very earth shaking? I think 

Some people may say that they pledge 
a sorority for the companionship of other 
girls. This may be necessary on our larger 
campuses, but I say that the same type of 
companionship exists between the girls 
on the same dorm floor, and within the 
same academic department on a small 
campus. What use then is a sorority? Is it 
really worth degrading yourself during 
that week of pledging just to become a 
member of a group that sponsors one or 
two worthwhile activities a year? Or is it 
worth putting out the money it takes to 
pledge? For me the answer is emphat- 
ically no.

Letters To The Editor 

large universities and state colleges, the 
social fraternities or sororities exist as a 
medium by which people can meet and 
get to know a few of their peers, those 
who would otherwise be a face in the 
crowd. At LVC the campus is too small 
to base the existence of a social unit or 
society on this. Here their existence is 
only justified by their presentation of 
events which uplift the social life of the 
student body as well as themselves 
throughout the academic year. Have they 
done so? 

Duane Le Baron, Jr.: In an ideal sense, 
the value of any social fraternity or 
sorority is succinctly, to intensify the per- 
sonal relations which a small campus is 
supposed to offer. In this way, the par- 
ticular organization is enabled to perform 
certain social functions which are en-

To the Editor: 

I think it is time for us all here at 
Lebanon Valley College to stop and re- 
examine our goals. 

We have just passed through a week 
termed Religious Emphasis Week. This 
week has been set aside as a time when 
all in the college family are asked to re- 
lax a little from the pressures of the 
academic life and to strengthen our re- 
ligious beliefs and spiritual lives. 

But what does this week mean today? 
For most students it meant little more 
than a second required chapel attendance 
in the week, and a chapel which was used 
to catch up on that letter writing or read- 
ing which had been put off for this oc- 

For some students it meant a play 
for which they spent three weeks re- 
hearsing. And yet, by last Saturday, with 
just one day remaining before the play 
was to be presented, the students had not 
been given a chance to rehearse in the 
lecture hall. Is that the significance of the 
importance of Religious Emphasis Week 

Religious Emphasis Week is to be free 
of the pressures of exams so students can 
avail themselves of this opportunity to re- 
affirm spiritual values. Is it? No. But it 
is not just those profs you might expect 
to schedule tests during REW who do so. 
In fact it seems that the religion depart- 
ment is one of the biggest offenders. 

At the beginning of the year the policy 
of that department was stated as being 
that any student who missed a test due 
to an excused absence would not be re- 
quired to make up the test. Early this 
semester it was apparent that those stu- 
dents in Concert Choir would miss a test 
on one of the reading books. They asked 
then if this policy meant they were ex- 
cused from taking the test. They were 
told yes, since that was an excused 

The week before tour these students 
were told that they were expected to make 
up this test — not a week after they got 
back, the week after REW, but the Mon- 
day morning after they got back, at 7 
a.m., the first Monday of REW. Protests 
were made. The generous department 
granted them extra time. They could 
make up the test Tuesday morning at 7 
a.m. or Tuesday evening during the sup- 
per hour. This was a true portrayal of the 
Religious Emphasis Week spirit. 

It is time for Lebanon Valley College 
to stop following blindly a tradition which 
seems to have lost its meaning for student 
and faculty alike. Let's examine this Re- 
ligious Emphasis Week. If it is worth re- 
taining, it is worth revising to make it an 
effective experience for today's college 
family. If it is not worth this, then it 
should be dropped. Let us not be afraid 
to change for the better. 

I challenge students and faculty to reply 
to this letter in kind through La Vie 
What is the feeling about REW? Can we 
truthfully say it is a meaningful exper 
ience? If not, dare we continue this mas- 
querade? Rae Shermeyer 
To the Editor: 

Most of the kids on campus probably 
get a charge out of some of the little 
demonstrations of fraternity pledging. I'm 
no exception — some of the stunts appeal 
to the bit of sadistic that is in all of us — 
but I really have to protest against "On 
ion Day." I didn't know about it before 
hand, but it was rather inescapable. In my 
eleven o'clock class, four Philo pledges 
sat in front of me wearing rank, juicy 
onions around their respective necks. Even 
with a bad cold I was stifled. The girl next 
to me had it worse. She didn't have a 
cold. The teacher, standing ten feet away, 
noticed it. The smell must have been a lot 
worse for the pledges, but then it's their 
initiation. If the Philo members have to 
make the Philo pledges conspicuous vic- 
tims of sadism, they should at least do it 
in a way that is not offensive to others on 
campus. Mary Ann Gilpatrick 

To the Editor: 

I have decided the time has come that 
I complain about the complainers on cam- 
pus. I am refering specifically to the 
Bull Phrog Column and the students' 
opinions in the La Vie Inquires Column 
of the last issue of La Vie. 

The Centennial 

Beginning April 6, and continuing through April 8, this school will 
complete its Centennial celebration by offering the members of the college 
and some guests the opportunity to hear three of the leading men in the 
fields of philosophy, chemistry, and economics speak on the topic, "The 
Next Century: Crisis and Opportunity." 

The speakers for Thursday's Symposium, Smith, Price, and Boulding, 
are men whose names are household expressions in their respective disci- 
plines. The speaker for Saturday's Convocation will be Henry Steele 
Commager, internationally known historian, whose testimony before the 
Fulbright Committee on the Vietnam conflict was recently reported in the 
New York Times. Dr. Commager will speak on a topic of his own 

The college is obviously going out of its way, as well it should for 
such an occasion, to make this a truly meaningful learning experience for 
all the students here. We are being given the opportunity, through teas, 
discussion groups, and panel discussions, to interact, not only with the 
Symposium speakers, but also with several distinguished professors from 
nearby colleges. 

And yet, underlying this truly fitting tribute to Lebanon Valley's 
first hundred years, is a basic distrust of the students by the administration. 
This distrust is not unfounded. Over the years, there has been much 
precedent for this unfortunate gap between the students and faculty. 

In years past, the college has sponsored many important speakers, 
only to find itself rudely embarrassed because the students preferred 
stretching their legs (homeward) to stretching their minds. The stakes, 
monetarily and in speaker quality, are far too high for the administration, 
no matter how much it would like, to end classes on Thursday and expect 
a reasonable majority of us to voluntarily remain on campus. 

So, we will be compelled to attend events that any college student 
should consider it not only his privilege, but also his right and duty to 
attend. We will be treated like children because our predecessors did not 
show the maturity that one should reasonably expect from a college 
student. Nor, for that matter, have we done anything to try to prove to the 
adminstration that we would attend without being compelled. 

The Centennial Symposium and Convocation will be a success for the 
college. For us, the students, it can be a success too. It can be the begin- 
ning of a new era in faculty-student understanding and cooperation, or it 
can be merely the continuance of the feeling that has been allowed to grow 
too long here — the idea that we are not very interested in the quest for 

By actively participating in the teas and discussions, and by attending 
the events that do not require attendance in large numbers (for example, 
the recital on Friday night by the outstanding pianist, Theodore Ullman), 
we can take the first important step toward closing the gap between 
ourselves and the administration. 

This is our opportunity to show the administration and ourselves that 
we do want, and can participate effectively in, programs of this type. 

If we fail, we will have only ourselves to blame when chapel slips 
continue to be handed out in future events of this kind. — P.P. 

I think that La Vie would do well to 
take a look at the motto of the New York 
Times — "All the news that (sic) fit to 
print." I consider the above mentioned 
columns unfit to print. I realize that the 
staff has been having difficulty finding 
enough material for the paper, but I 
would rather see a blank space than such 
derrogatory (sic) remarks. 

The question that keeps coming to my 
mind is why on earth are these com- 
plainers paying such a large amount of 
money to come and stay here when ob- 
viously they cannot stand the place? 

I truly believe that my three and a half 
(going on four) years here at Lebanon 
Valley have been the most exciting and 
rewarding. The intellectual, social, em- 
otional, political, and economic education 
that I have gotten I consider to be one of 
the best that I could have received any-

To the Editor: 

In the February 24 edition of La Vie 
under the article entitled "Action . . . 
Now" it was stated that the "Dining Hall 
committee is powerless to act in our be- 
half because no one bothers to register his 
complaints with any of its members." 
After trying my darndest to consume the 
so-called "meal" that was put before the 
resident student body on Friday night, 
the third of March, I remembered the 
article in La Vie and decided to register 
my complaint with a very influential 
member of said committee, the head 
waiter that night at dinner. 

A lot of good it did me! After asking 
the head waiter how to go about regis- 
tering a complaint, he answered, "I'm 
listening." I informed him that I thought 
the meal (?) was terrible (which was a 
true compliment) and he replied that a 
lot of people thought that the meal was 
good. I asked him what he thought the 

Campus Scene 

Dear Bull Phrog: 

I really feel that I should apologize 
for complaining to you about some of the 
problems on this campus. It just seemed 
to me that the best way to solve a prob- 
lem isn't always to ignore its presence. 

Well, I can see that I should have tak- 
en a course with Dr. Pangloss last se- 

I'm beginning to understand the reason 
our dining hall staff served those deli- 
cious meals I wrote about. They wanted 
to save up so that they could really 
splurge and serve a good meal this past 
Saturday to the fifty students who stayed 
on campus, and the three hundred guests 
who came to visit. 

It's nice to see that the guests to the 
college are so well-fed. I think I'd like to 
be a guest, and not just a captive gour- 

See you during vacation. 

results would be if everyone who ate din- 
ner in the dining hall that night was asked 
whether or not they enjoyed the dinner 
and he thought that the majority would 
have liked it. "Besides," he said, "even 
if only two people liked it (the meal), 
then it was good and it served its pur- 
pose." He continued with "After all, you 
can't have it your way all the time." At 
this time, what I did manage to get down 
at dinner was getting to me and I had 
to leave. 

Now I ask you, the student body of 
Lebanon Valley College, what the 
good is it to even bother to register a 
complaint when people like that are ofl 
the Dining Hall Committee?

danced because of the idea of smallness, 
intimacy, etc. Why it is a value is because 
it is more or less a finishing touch put to 
the atmosphere of the campus. We all 
agree — coming from a small campus — 
that "smallness" avoids impersonalization, 
red tape, and the idea of "being lost." 
Having been on large campuses such as 
penn State, Columbia, and University of 
Penn, I have observed fraternities per- 
sonally; but I have also been on small 
campuses such as Dickinson, and have 
noticed that the fraternities that eixst 
there (national) seem to offer a complete- 
ly different situation than that offered 
from the large campuses. 

This brings up the most important 
point: on a small campus which is well 
organized the fraternity or sorority can 
foster their concepts of brotherhood/sis- 
terhood; can work with a willing college 
body to improve the social milieu of the 
campus — because in the end the entire 
complex of fraternities would benefit 
from this; and could develop the highest 
personal qualities in the individual mem- 
bers. From personal experience, I feel 
that the middle point is irrelevant on the 
large campus. But a small campus such 
as LVC demands that these three points 
be carried out. Being a brother of a fra- 
ternity I know that the first point is 
achieved very well; this is an essential 
value. Through team activities such as 
big-name groups, visits to charitable en- 
terprises, and general social activities the 
first value is carried out. 

As to the value of working with the 
college body to improve the social atmos- 
phere — and by college body I mean stu- 
dents and the administration — the organ 
izations do not seem to serve, i.e. carry 
out, a value. Why? For the simple reason 
that all organizations can operate only 
within extremely narrow bounds, bounds 
which impair innovation — campus activi 
ties to ignite interest in the student body. 
One reason is because they are not na 
tional. And the reasons given are one 
big rationalization: too much money, too 
much nasty freedom, too much "licen 
tiousness," et cetera. If they cannot 
achieve national status, then they should 
at least be allowed to hold unlimited good 
social activities; more dances, debates, 
trips offered to the entire campus. 

All of the social organizations (fra- 
ternities/sororities) have demonstrated 
that they are willing to improve the cam 
pus by the innovations they have brought 
to LVC, be it student laundry service or 
big-name groups. There is such poten 
tiality in these organizations of willing 
men and women to improve the campus, 
but at the present time they are limited by 
narrow bounds. 

The last value, that of promoting the 
highest qualities within the members is 
probably the most important. This value 
teaches the ability to get along, the ca 
pacity to adjust one's dominant interests 
to those of the other members, and to pre 
pare the individual for the game called 
life; where the ability to meet people on 
a personal basis is paramount to isolation 

Janet Stein: I was asked what are the 
values of a social sorority on a small 
campus like LVC. After giving the ques 
tion serious consideration, I believe the 
most important values obtained from a

sorority are the friendships gained by 
working and living with your sorority 
sisters. Another value is the ability for a 
close knit group to sponsor social activi- 
ties for themselves and the entire campus. 
Not only is friendship gained in a soror- 
ity, but also a feeling of belonging, the 
developing of responsibility and leader- 
ship, and finally providing an outlet for 
ideas and the expression of oneself. 

George King: Membership in the fra- 
ternities and sororities of today's college 
is on the decline. As schools have become 
more technically oriented, the students 
have become less interested in activity for 
activity's sake. They are introspective, 
"inner-directed," if you please. And the 
former stereotype of a college junior 
with beard, boots, and dungarees has suc- 
cumbed to the portrait of a slightly back- 
ward but basically knowledgeable fresh- 
man who is confident that by his sopho- 
more year he will have unraveled the 
mysteries of life. Fraternities seem to be 
out of place in such an environment. 

Yet I feel that the Lebanon Valley 
atmosphere attracts certain individuals 
who are different from the mass pro- 
duced eggheads previously mentioned. 
These are the people who can construc- 
tively use fraternities in their total social 
development. I have dealt with such 
students and have myself benefited from 
many frat programs. However, the con- 
structive force of fraternities and soror- 
ities has changed drastically in the past 
three years. I feel that certain basic 
changes are necessary in order to preserve 
the benefited aspects of fraternal life. 
The inadequacies of pledging, the foster- 
ing of cliques, the discrimination — these 
and other detrimental effects must be 
minimized if the fraternity system is to 
survive. Only then will the fraternities 
and sororities be valuable to the college.

Valley Honors Wrestler 
With Sam Willman Day 

Sam Willman Day at Lebanon Valley 
College, a day when Lebanon Valley 
honored one of the finest wrestlers who 
ever attended this institution, was held 
on Saturday, February 25. Sam's parents 
and friends were on hand to share this 
proud moment with him. After Sam's 
match, in which he handily pinned his 
Muhlenberg opponent, the meet was 
stopped temporarily while Captain Coop- 
er gave a fine speech honoring Sam. Next 
Brad Rentzel, president of the Knights of 
the Valley, presented a plaque to Sam in 
recognition of his outstanding wrestling 
achievements. A standing ovation was 
given Sam by the fans present. 

Sam finished the season with a 12-0 
record and had broken nearly all the Leb- 
anon Valley College wrestling records. 
The Flying Dutchmen went on to win all 
the matches against Muhlenberg, except 
heavyweight which they forfeited to the 
Mules. Wrestling for Lebanon Valley 
were Archie Laughead 123 pounds, Bud 
Kaufmann 130, Sam Willman 137, Agu 
Laane 145, Kerry Althouse 152, Joe Torre 
160, Harry "Lump" Wertsch 167, Rich 
Basta 177. The win over Muhlenberg 
gave the team a 9-3 record; the best yet 
of any LVC wrestling team.

TV Gets Off The Ground 
In College AVA Class 

Using closed circuit television equip- 
ment owned by Lebanon Valley College, 
Audio-Visual Aids classes are currently 
presenting TV teaching programs. Pre- 
sented Friday mornings at 9 and 10 am, 
they deal primarily with the use of 
graphics (globes, maps, charts) in teach- 

Each presentation is done by a team 
of three students. During the half hour 
broadcast, each one takes a turn at being 
director, cameraman, and talent. The 
show is beamed to remaining AVA stu- 
dents in an adjacent room. Three student 
judges rate the show; the class members 
offer constructive comments to the team 
after the show. 

Dr. Gilbert D. McKlveen, who teaches 
the AVA course, states, 'The primary 
purpose of the project is not to learn 
graphics or AVA materials, but to get 
first-hand experience in presenting a TV 
show." He thinks this is beneficial because 
many beginning teachers will be working 
in school districts employing closed cir- 
cuit TV teaching.

New Scoring Record 
Set Against Western 
Maryland, 123-78 

The Lebanon Valley basketball team 
closed out its 1966-67 basketball season 
by winning two of the last three games. 
The wins were over Delaware Valley and 
Western Maryland. The win over 
Western Maryland established a new 
Lebanon Valley College scoring record 
for the basketball team. 

Delaware Valley was the opponent for 
the first of the three remaining games. 
The game was played in the gym Tues- 
day, February 21. Paced by the scoring 
of Simpson, the Dutchmen scored an 81- 
68 win over their opponents. Simpson 
led the Valley in scoring with 21 points, 
while Atkinson and Stauffer followed 
with 18 points and 17 points, respectively. 
Contributing to the score for the varsity 
were Billmeyer with 1 1 points, Todd with 
8 points, Decker with 4 points, and Moyer 
with an additional two points. Lebanon 
Valley took 58 shots from the field and 
made 27, for a 47% average compared 
to Delaware Valley's 43%. The Dutch- 
men also made 27 of 35 foul shots. 

The following Thursday night, Febru- 
ary 23, Valley played host to Western 
Maryland. Lebanon Valley reached its 
point of perfection for the year as they 
trounced Western Maryland 123-78. With 
this win, Lebanon Valley erased the old 
record for total points ever scored in one 
game by any Lebanon Valley basketball 
team and replaced it with a new one, 123 
points. Billmeyer and Todd led Valley in 
scoring with 24 points each. Stauffer fol- 
lowed them with 22 points, Atkinson con- 
tributed another 20 points and Simpson 
added 17 more points. Also contributing 
to the Valley's score was Decker with 4 
points, Kuhn with 6 points, Dottolo with 
4 points, and Moyer with 2 points. 
Valley made 58% of its shots from the 
field, 53 out of 91. The team also made 

17 of 30 foul shots as well as grabbing 
64 rebounds to finally clobber Western 

Lebanon Valley rounded out its season 
with a return meeting with Albright at 
Reading, February 25. Lebanon Valley 
had won the first meeting between the 
two teams; however, the Lions won this 
one 79-70. Simpson led the Valley in 
scoring with 19 points followed by, At- 
kinson with 18 points, Stauffer with 8 
points and Decker with 4 points. The 
Dutchmen made 41% of their shots from 
the field and 90% of their foul shots, 

18 out of 20.

To the Editor: 

For a long time we have been bothered 
by several situations on the LVC campus, 
but we have not expressed this discontent, 
probably because we have the very com- 
mon fatalistic belief that nobody here 
will listen. One reason for this attitude 
was mentioned by P.P. in his editorial 
in the February 24 issue of La Vie. "Dis- 
approval of (certain) conditions has pre- 
viously been voiced in this newspaper. 
Yet the administration has not seen fit 
to reply to the allegations which have 
been made." Perhaps many students are 
correct when they say that the adminis- 
tration doesn't realize there are students — 
except when the bills are due. 

We would like to have the adminis- 
tration answer the following questions, 
many of which have been asked before 
but have been left unanswered: 

1. Why can't the gym be open more? 
We refer especially to Saturday and Sun- 
day nights, but there are other times 
which might be questioned. For example, 
the schedule says the gym is open from 
eight to five daily, but most students have 
morning classes and the gym really closes 
at about 3:15 so the janitors can have 
forty-five minutes to sweep before basket- 
ball practice. That's ridiculous; anyone 
who takes that long to sweep the gym 
floor must be crippled. The result is that 
many students can't use the gym during 
the scheduled times. Also, why was the 
gym closed in the evenings during final 

2. Why isn't something done for Krei- 
der Hall? Last year, hot water was never 
seen on third floor within an hour of 
supper (often not on any floor), and 
we've heard this year's freshmen must 
keep a supply of candles to use during 
power failures. 

3. Why must dormitories be closed 
during vacations, especially short ones 
such as Thanksgiving? It seems unreas- 
onable to require students who live far 
away to go home for a three-or four-day

A Winner In Sight? 

The Lebanon Valley College Economics 
Lecture Series presented Dr. Holland 
Hunter, chairman of the Department of 
Economics at Haverford College on 
March 2. From the topic, "India versus 
China — Who's Ahead?". Dr. Hunter con- 
cluded that the economies of India and 
China were both "underdeveloping." 

Dr. Hunter first reviewed recent Indian 
history, stressing the importance of the 
Hindu and Moslem conflict coupled with 
problems of national defense, agricultural 
hardships, and a rising birth rate and 
price levels. Then, turning to China, Dr. 
Hunter stated that after a "century of 
humiliation," in 1949 chairman Mao or- 
ganized a highly centralized government 
in China as compared to that of a decen- 
tralized India. 

Dr. Hunter underlined the importance 
of China's great drop in economic well- 
being in 1960 as being due to unfavorable 
weather conditions, her refusal to accept 
economic aid from Russia, and the evacu- 
ation of 10,000 Soviet technicians and 
their industrial knowledge. With the 
avocation of the "Great Leap Forward," 
chairman Mao has only slowly increased 
total output per capita and has been con- 
fronted by the more "rational" Party 
hierarchy in his "drive" for economic 
growth. Dr. Hunter saw the "drive" policy 
of China and the "drift" policy of India 
as still "underdeveloping" in relation to 
other important economic countries. 

by Richard W. Buek, Jr. 

Dr. Hunter pointed out that the real 
economic problem lies with peasants in 
the country and only local personal help, 
for example the Peace Corps, will really 
change both countries. The populations 
of China and India combined compose 
one-third of the human race and birth 
control methods must be employed as a 
start to solving the economic problems of 
both nations. 

Earlier in the afternoon Dr. Hunter 
conducted a most interesting and in- 
formative discussion with Dr. Tom's stu- 
dents on the topic of Marketing in the 
Soviet Union. He observed that since the 
great devastation of the Second World 
War and the loss of twenty-five million 
lives and another twenty million people 
who failed to be born in the twenty year 
period between 1940-1960, the Russian 
people have become better off and now 
need to be coaxed into buying consumer 
goods, leading to a need for marketing 
in the USSR and the end of shoddy mer- 
chandise that will no longer sell. 

Recently in a few industries Soviet 
leaders have looked to the profit motive 
as a criterion of production instead of 
quantities of items produced. The Soviet 
Union is trying a few Western innovations 

but these should not be confused with a 
switch to capitalism and the private en- 
terprise system. Dr. Hunter stressed the 
difference between consumer choice and 
consumer sovereignty. The Russian citi- 
zen has a choice of products, but when a 
certain supply of an item is exhausted, 
there is no re-allocation of resources from 
other sectors of the economy to supply 
the increase in demand. 

In December of 1966, Dr. Hunter at- 
tended a seminar in Russia with some of 
their leading intelligencia. Dr. Hunter so 
aptly pointed to a main ideological dif- 
ference between the Soviet Union and the 
United States. To Russians, United States 
pragmatism, the experimenting with a 
number of ways to do something and 
choosing the way that works best, seems 
a waste of time and resources while they 
feel there is always a single way and 
truth behind every project that can be 
obtained from a theoretical discussion of 
the problem. Dr. Hunter conveyed the 
understanding achieved by such seminars, 
and Lebanon Valley College students re- 
ceived an excellent insight into the prob- 
lems of the Soviet economy by the ex- 
amples Dr. Hunter used from his per- 
sonal experiences. 

(A word of thanks is due to the People's 
National Bank of Lebanon for helping to 
bring Dr. Holland Hunter to our cam- 

4. Is that building next to the infirm- 
ary really a Dining Hall? (Well, at least 
that's an appropriate place for it.) Since 
La Vie is a newspaper rather than a book, 
we'll list only a few complaints, (a) 
Family-style meals are ridiculous and 
wasteful; often the seconds consist of four 
or five pieces of meat for eight hungry 
people at one table, while another table 
wastes food because only one or two 
wanted more, (b) The quality of the 
food is appalling. We've been told that 
those parakeet legs are the seconds for 
chicken, but we still have doubts, and 
someone said the black carbon sticks 
were sausages before the kitchen staff 
burned them. There must be something 
very nutritious in raw potatoes and cold 
eggs because they surely don't taste good, 
(c) Some people have said that a good 
variety of lunch meats are served early 
in the lunch period, but those who can- 
not go early wonder if there exists some- 
thing besides plain old bologna. One of 
these students says he thinks he'll soon 
turn into a bologna, (d) What's wrong 
with posting menues for all meals in ad- 
vance? Sometimes we'd be more inclined 
to go to breakfast if we knew lunch was 
to be unpalatable and supper inedible, (e) 
Why must milk be limited? We know of 
few other schools which limit the amount 
of milk students may drink, (f) Etc., de- 
pending upon individuals' particular 

5. Why was an attempt made to squeeze 
registration into four hours? Getting 800 
students through registration in four hours 
would be nothing short of amazing. In 
fact, some of the people who waited in 
line for an hour to make schedule 
changes (even minor ones such as chang- 
ing sections in the same course) prob- 
ably thought it would be amazing to 
register one student in four hours. 

6. Why couldn't the final exam 
schedules have been started earlier so 
that a correct one could be found early 
enough to give students time to plan some 

Perhaps if some member of the admin- 
istration will answer these questions, 
other students will express their griev- 
ances; then some of the bad situations 
on campus could be corrected, and we 
could at least be told why others can't 
be improved.

Government 'Robs' 
Through Research 

(Reader's Digest) The federal govern- 
ment is now spending two billion dollars 
annually to underwrite university re- 
search, and many prominent educators 
are beginning to think this support could 
spell disaster for higher education. 

Members of Congress as well as edu- 
cators are concerned that the massive 
research grants have harmed higher edu- 
cation by "excessively diverting scientific 
manpower from teaching." Representa- 
tive Henry P. Reuss estimates that more 
than forty thousand teachers have desert- 
ed classrooms for laboratories, lured by 
federal research dollars. 

More than two dozen colleges and uni- 
versities now employ Washington lobby- 
ists to compete for federal funds. 

Several colleges receive more than forty 
percent of their operating budgets from 
federal research projects. Most of these 
grants go to a relatively few universities. 
As a result, faculty raiding of small insti- 
tutions by the big universities is becoming 
almost commonplace. 

Government spokesmen say that the 
research has touched off a "knowledge 
explosion." But not everyone agrees. 

Dr. W. T. Lippincott, a professor of 
chemistry at Ohio State University, says 
that government support of research is 
"potentially the most powerful destructive 
force the higher education system has 
ever faced." And others point out that 
the "explosion" could leave higher educa- 
tion in tatters if it is not more closely

LVC Selects Mund 
As Acting President 

Dr. Allan W. Mund, President of the Board of Trustees of Lebanon 
Valley College since 1962, was named acting president of the College, on 
April 1 . He will also continue as Board president. 

The announcement was made by the Board whose Executive Com- 
mittee and Finance Committee reported their recommendation to the 
entire Board for action and approval Friday evening, March 31, at a 
special meeting. 

Dr. Mund replaces Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of the College 
since 1951. Dr. Miller's retirement, announced early in January, became 
effective April 1 also. 

Stressing the temporary nature of the 
appointment, Dr. Mund commented: "I 
feel highly honored that the Board has 
placed this trust in me. I look forward 
to their continued cooperation during this 
transition period. With their assistance I 
am confident that we can maintain the 
upward surge of the College as we enter 
our second century of educating young 
men and women." 

The new College executive first be- 
came affiliated with Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege in 1958 when he was elected as a 
member-at-large of the Board. There fol- 
lowed a tenure as first vice-president dur- 
ing the presidency of Dr. Elmer N. Funk- 
houser. Upon the latter's retirement in 
1962, Dr. Mund was elected to the top 
Board post. 

A native of Baltimore, Maryland, and 
now residing in neighboring Towson, Dr. 
Mund is the retired board chairman of 
the Ellicott Machine Corporation, inter- 
national dredge designing and manufac- 
turing company. 

In addition to his affiliation with the 
dredge firm, he is a member of the Board 
of Directors of several other industrial 
corporations. Since 1960 he has also been 
a trustee and member of the finance com- 

mittee of Western Maryland College, 

A graduate of Baltimore Polyclinic In- 
stitute, Dr. Mund pursued work in engi- 
neering, production, labor relations, fi- 
nance and business administration at 
Johns Hopkins University. 

A lifelong member of Third Evangel- 
ical United Brethren Church, Baltimore, 
Dr. Mund is currently the president of 
the Church's Board of Trustees, an elect- 
ed lay delegate, and Church treasurer. He 
is also a trustee of the Maryland Council 
of Churches. 

Active in service organizations, Dr. 
Mund is a member and past president of 
the Catonsville Kiwanis Club, a member 
of the Center Club and the Merchants 
Club of Baltimore, and has served as 
chairman of the Community Fund -Red 
Cross annual fund campaign in his area. 

The incoming chief executive received 
an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from 
Lebanon Valley College at the June, 
1966, Commencement. 

Girls Polish Instruments 
For April Band Concert 

The little-known LVC All-Girl Band 
has announced its annual spring concert 
to be presented April 11, 1967, at 8:30 
p.m. in Engle Hall. Members of the 
group are chosen at random from those 
girls with no class at 8:00 on Friday 
morning. Also, the girls are playing then- 
minor instruments. 

A varied program promises to delight 
and educate the listener. A few of the 
selections will be Passagaglia in C Minor 
by J. S. Bach, Purcell Portraits by Joseph 
Jenkins and March for Moderns by Gared 
Spears. Highlighting the program, the 
horn trio, formed by Gretchen Long, 
Christine McComsey and Sandra George 
will play Erik Leidzen's Alpine Fantasy. 
Not letting the brass family steal the 
show, the clarinets' rebuttal will be David 
Bennett's Clarinet Carousel played by 
Carol Stowe and Sonja Hawbaker. 

It has been said that the All-Girl Band 
plays for its own amusement and to Dr. 
Thurmond's amazement. The girls chal- 
lenge the campus community to attend.

A Dedication 

The final Centennial celebration is taking place this weekend. It 
promises to be an event most worthy of marking this college's first hundred 
years as an institution of higher education. Throughout the celebration, 
which began in the spring of last year, the most outstanding characteristic 
of all that has taken place has been the unstinting effort by the college to 
make the Centennial a truly significant occasion. 

Credit for making the Centennial as successful as it has been to the 
present is due to the students as well as the faculty and administration. 
But the "buck" of appreciation for what everyone has done for everyone 
else stops being passed at the desk of one man, and one man only. 

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, recently retired president of this college, is 
the man with whom the final responsibility for the Centennial rests. It 
was through his guidance and ambitious plans such as those for this Sym- 
posium and Convocation, were drafted. 

But, for all his efforts, and the efforts of so many others, the final 
success or failure of this Centennial celebration rests with us, the students. 
Our participation in events which do not require our attendance will not 
only assure the success of the Symposium as a significant learning experi- 
ence, but will also point the way toward a time when we will no longer be 
compelled to attend events of this kind. 

Let the Contennial celebration be dedicated to the first hundred years 
of this institution, but let its success be dedicated to Frederic K. Miller.

A New President 

On behalf of the entire student body, La Vie wishes to welcome Dr. 
Allan W. Mund, President of the Board of Trustees of Lebanon Valley 
College, as acting president until a permanent successor for Dr. Frederic 
K. Miller, who recently retired, is selected. 

Dr. Miller's sixteen years as president of this college have been ex- 
tremely successful all over this campus. The new buildings constructed 
during this time, and new programs he has instituted are only the most 
obvious markings of the progress he has made. The ultimate success or 
failure of his administration lies in what the students who have come and 
gone during his tenure have gained by his being president. 

Although a specific answer to this question must be a personal one, 
we feel that our lives, as well as the lives of our fellow students, have been 
greatly enriched by Dr. Miller. So it is with some understanding of what 
Dr. Miller has done and has tried to do, that we look forward with confi- 
dence to Dr. Mund's term as acting president. 

We feel sure that Dr. Mund, who has been a most active and faithful 
member of the Board, will continue the work already done by Dr. Miller. 
We firmly believe that Dr. Mund will keep the college moving forward by 
not allowing forward4ooking ideas for new programs to lie dormant in 
committees until the permanent president takes office. 

The success of Dr. Mund's administration and the success of the 
college as it begins another century or higher education depend on 
our help.

To the Students: 

Mrs. Miller and I express to each member of the student body our sincere 
thanks for the many courtesies and kindnesses extended to us through the twenty- 
eight years during which we have served the College, either on the faculty or the 
administrative staff. 

It will be our prayer that each of you will find during your collegiate experi- 
ence those challenges, both spiritual and academic, which will enable you to fulfill 
your heart's desires. 

Sincerely yours, 
Frederic K. Miller 

Letters To The Editor 


Campui Scene 

Dear Bull Phrog: 

Vacation here was a bit early this 
year. I like my vacations as much as any- 
body but I just couldn't believe it was 
"spring" vacation when I saw five inches 
of snow outside my window at home last 

But, as usual, it was great to get back 
to school once again. What made me 
happiest was having to come back early 
Monday evening to take a test for an 
evening class when classes weren't sup- 
posed to begin officially until the next 

The administration has really stepped 
in and done something about the dining 
hall situation. Taking note of our "ex- 
treme discontent" with the food, the 
Dining Hall Committee sent out a ques- 
tionnaire asking the students which foods 
they like, which they tolerate, and which 
they refuse to eat. 

When the final results were computed, 
a copy was sent to Vic Tanney as proof 
that exercise is not necessarily the fastest 
way to lose weight. 

All kidding aside, the food really has 
gotten better, and there is more of it. 
That's nice. 

Hope you're having a good vacation. 

To the Editor: 

For the past few days, I have had the 
opportunity of visiting on third floor 
Mary Green. I would like to inform all 
the men on this campus how lonely these 
girls are. They need love, affection and 

They treated me so well; they let me 
sleep in their lounge and they brought 
me food from the dining hall. (I could 
write another letter about the food.) I'm 
sure they would do the same for you. 
It is really a shame that you don't give 
them a chance. If you would like to 
make amends, just call 867-9831. Don't 
just sit on your haunches, man, be a 
tiger, or better yet a leopard. I found out 
what charming girls really live there, and 
like I said, they're starving for love, af- 
fection, and DATES. 

Back to the cage, 
(Leonard the Leopard) 

To the Editor: 

In a letter to the editor in the last 
issue of La Vie, Ellen Jackson posed a 
question concerning why complainers pay 
such large amounts of money to come 
here when they obviously cannot stand 
the place. 

All students who come here have some 
reason — something they like about the 
school. But does the fact that the school 
has some good features mean that they 
must accept everything as it is? 

They should try to make that which is 
bad, good and make that which is good, 
better. This calls for pointing out the 
problem areas — complaining — and then 
working to improve the situation. By 
complaining and demanding improvements 
students are showing a devotion to the 
school, a desire to better it, rather than a 
rejection of it. 

It is the passive student who simply 
accepts the status quo who causes me to 
worry — for isn't one purpose of a liberal 
education to encourage the student to 
think, to weigh, to criticize, rather than 
simply to accept and to memorize what 
the book says or what the teacher says. 
Shouldn't this carry over into life — the 
questioning rather than blindly accepting 
things as they are? 

The liberally educated person does not 
ignore criticisms of what he believes is 
right or good. He listens to them, weighs 
them and either defends or changes his 
own ideas. How can someone who has 
received the best intellectual, social, emo- 
tional, political, and economic education 
he could have received anywhere say that 
he would prefer to see in La Vie blank 

space rather than alleged derrogatory 


Sometimes very direct, perhaps even 
biting, criticism is the only way to bring 
people to stop, to think, and to act. Does 
this make it unfit to print? Even the 
New York Times reserves judgments of 
fit to print to news, not to opinion. 

Roberta Gable 

To the Editor: 

Concerning the letter Rae Shermeyer 
wrote in the last issue about REW, I un- 
derstand that the head of the religion de- 
partment is very upset about the state- 
ment on the department's giving a test 
the week of REW and the obvious mis- 
understanding of the departmental state- 
ments by some students. I thought the 
main point of the letter concerned the 
true emphasis of REW and a possible re- 
evaluation of its meaning. But then, it's 
so very typical of the above mentioned 
department to ignore important emphasis 
and to dwell on minute details. 


To the Editor: 

I would like to applaud the im- 
provement in the situation in the dining 
hall recently, the establishment of a 
counseling service through the psych de- 
partment, and the courage of the head of 
the chem department for seeking out 
students' views and listening. 

Donna Simmers 

To the Editor: 

In a letter published in the last issue of 
La Vie I noted a conflict which had aris- 
en between some students and the Religion 
department over a make up test. 

In fairness to all concerned I would 
like to acknowledge that since the publi- 
cation of that letter I have been informed 
that many points about this conflict which 
were raised in this letter were not true. 

The policy of the department of rel- 
igion had never been stated as excusing 
students from making up tests missed 
during excused absences. Although one 
member of the staff, when asked if these 
students could be excused from making 
up this test, said that there may be a slight 
possibility, he corrected himself within a 

All concerned were definitely told they 
had to make up the test two weeks before 
that make-up was scheduled. 

I offer my apologies to all those af- 
fected by the statements in that letter.

Students, Faculty Attend 
College-Business Parley 

On Tuesday, March 14, 1967, a group 
of faculty and students attended a Col- 
lege-Business Symposium presented by the 
Chamber of Commerce of the U.S.A. in 
York, Pennsylvania, at the Hotel York- 

Faculty members representing the col- 
lege at the meeting were Dr. Ralph Shay, 
associate professor of history and politi- 
cal science, and Dr. C. F. Joseph Tom, 
associate professor of economics and 
chairman of the department of economics 
and business administration. 

Lebanon Valley students who also at- 
tended the symposium included Richard 
Buek, Paul Foutz, Alan Hague, Donald 
Haight, Mark Holtzman, George King, 
and Paul Pickard. 

The purpose of the day-long meeting 
was to explore in detail some pressing 
national problems about which young 
men and women from colleges and uni- 
versities and men and women from busi- 
ness and professional organizations share 
a mutual interest and a common con- 

Moderating the symposium was Mr. 
George Stearns, 2nd, vice president of the 
Chamber of Commerce of the U. S. A. 

The symposium featured three main 
speakers. The first speaker was Mr. C. 
H. Smith, Jr., president of the Steel Im- 
provement and Forge Company of Cleve- 
land, Ohio. Mr. Smith's topic was "The 
U.S.A. and Underdeveloped Countries." 
Mr. Smith is well acquainted with the 
subject, having business interests in Bra- 
zil and India. 

The second speaker was Mr. William 
P. Hall, director of business and com- 
munity development of the Rouse Com- 
pany, Baltimore, Maryland. Mr. Hall 
commented on the topic of "Unemploy- 
ment and Technology." Mr. Hall has had 
extensive experience in the personnel 

The third speaker was Dr. Stanley V. 
Malcuit, chief economist of the Alumi- 
num Company of America, Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania. Dr. Malcuit spoke on the 
topic, "Inflation." Dr. Malcuit discussed 
the various causes and effects of inflation 
and inflation's possible future role in 
the American economy. 

Each speaker was the target of ques- 
tions directed from the floor after he 
presented his topic. Students from the 
twenty participating colleges and univer- 
sities asked the questions. 

After lunch the discussion was resum- 
ed, this time with teams of students car- 
rying on discussions with the panel of 

The meeting was adjourned late in the 
afternoon; everyone who had participated 
had gained more knowledge and had a 
better insight concerning the problems 

Under co-captains Joe Mowrer and Gary Gunther, the Lebanon Valley lacrosse 
team gives the Catonsville, Maryland, club a run for their money. In spite of their 
efforts the LVC men still came out on the short end when the score was tallied after 
the scrimmage on Saturday, April 1.

The long awaited arrival of spring 
weather brought students out of the 
dorms faster than a fire drill. Sunbathers 
soaked up the sun in glorious inactivity. 
The more energetic strolled through the 
still dead woodland and the equally dead 
dust-laden streets of Annville. After 
spending a winter without exerting your- 
self beyond getting up and walking 
through snow drifts should you begin 
with mild activities like sunbathing and 
taking a walk to celebrate the arrival of 
spring? Of course not; no less than three 
hours of strenuous tennis is the only way 
to initiate spring. You may limp for three 
days after. It hurts to lift your right arm 
in class and the teacher thinks you don't 
know anything (even if by some slight 
chance you do.) But the stiffness and the 
blisters go away by the next weekend 
when you want to try again.

tion of his services, he was awarded the 
Army-Navy Certificate of Appreciation 
in 1948. 

Dr. Price became active in politics in 
1950, and in 1952 he won the Demo- 
cratic nomination to Congress, but lost 
the election by a small margin. 

He is at present a member of the Uni- 
ted World Federalists, serving as presi- 
dent from 1959-1961, the World Move- 
ment For World Federal Government, 
and the executive Committee of the 
U. S. National Committee for UNESCO. 
His standard is "world peace through uni- 
versal law." 

In addition to academic achievements, 
which include being a member of Phi 
Beta Kappa, Dr. Price is quite an ath- 
lete. He was faculty squash champion at 
the Universtiy of Illinois and the Univer- 
sity of Notre Dame and won various sail- 
boat racing championships on the Great 
Lakes and the Chesapeake Bay. 

At home Dr. Price is surrounded by 
art objects from foreign countries pre- 
sented to him by students. Students are 
often invited to the Price home for semi- 
nars, and Dr. Price sometimes wears na-

McKlveen Serves 
As Area Evaluator 

Dr. Gilbert D. McKlveen recently 
served as chairman of the Evaluating 
Committee of Central Dauphin High 
School in Harrisburg. The committee was 
charged by the Middle States Association 
Commission on Secondary Schools to 
conduct the survey March 29-31. There 
were twenty-five members on the team 
from Pennsylvania and New Jersey and 
they were classroom teachers, adminis- 
trators and members of the New Jersey 
Department of Public Instruction. 

Dr. McKlveen will address Pennsbury 
senior high school, in New Jersey, at a 
National Honor Society assembly on 
April 19, and will be keynote speaker at 
a Teachers Education and Professional 
Standards meeting in Harrisburg, April

Dr. Huston Smith, Professor of Philos- 
ophy at the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, has devoted his teaching ca- 
reer to bridging intellectual gulfs — those 
between the East and West, between sci- 
ence and the humanities, and between 
formal education of the classroom and 
informal education via television. 

Born of missionary parents in Soo- 
chow, Dr. Smith lived in China until he 
was seventeen. This early experience, 
supplemented by field studies in India, 
Japan, and Southeast Asia, have provided 
background for his research in the field 
of comparative philosophies and religion. 

The success of a 1955 series of televis- 
ion lectures in St. Louis drew Dr. Smith 
into a vanguard of adult education 
through this developing medium. Since 
then, three of his series have been filmed 
for nationwide distribution by the Na- 
tional Educational Television Center. 

Professor Smith was appointed Austra- 
lia's first Charles Strong Lecturer on 
World Religions in 1961, and annual lec- 
turer to the John Dewey Society in 1964. 
One of his lectures was published in ex- 
panded form under the title Condemned 
to Meaning. 

In addition to Condemned to Mean- 
ing, Dr. Smith is the author of The Reli- 
gions of Man and The Purposes of Higher 
Education and the editor and co-author 


A High Price 

To Pay For Progress 

With the arrival of warm weather, 
usually heralded by the vernal equinox 
and an unpredicted snowstorm, a young 
man's (and young woman's) fancy turns 
to spring, so the old saying goes. 

Yet, here in Annville, spring has had 
some trouble making its presence felt 
among the populace. This is not because 
the weather has not been warm enough, 
for there have been days when the bank's 
thermometer has recorded temperatures 
in the high sixties. It seems, then, that the 
basis for the problem lies in that the us- 
ual trappings of spring, grass, flowers, 
and leaves on the trees, have not yet 
made their appearance. 

And, from the way things look now, 
these very important ingredients in pro- 
ducing that glorious malady called 
"spring fever" may never appear. They 
may never appear because the people of | 
this town have brought upon themselves, | 
under the aegis of progress, a seemingly 
endless installation of sewers to help 
make the great leap forward — into the 
twentieth century. Pipes, pieces of streets, 
rocks, and dirt have been indiscriminately 
strewn over what people once called their 
lawns, killing or mutilating the vegetation 
that once flourished there. 

Drills and Thrills 

Ever since last fall, the sonorous tones 
of pneumatic drill have been jolting 
people out of bed at the crack of dawn 
all over the town. This is not especially 
upsetting to those who normally arise to 
greet the day at that hour, but many stu- 
dents who do not have to get up quite so 
early find that they often have little 
choice in the matter. | 

To add insult to injury, the students i 

by Paul Pickard 

who surrender and get out of bed some- 1 
times find that one of the drills has | 
punctured a water pipe, and as their ' 
shower water floods someone's lawn, the 
students are denied the small consolation 
of drowning their sorrows in hard water. 

But students have not been the only 
ones affected by this sudden outburst of 
progress. The townspeople too have had 
their patience worn to a thin frazzle. The 
outside alarm clock might not have up- 
set them too much, but they have been 
punished in other ways. 

Ugly Incidents 

Originally, once the sewer men had 
finished installing a section of sewer and 
had filled in the gaping holes they had 
made, the unsuspecting residents of that 
area would confidently park their cars on 
top of the fill at night. However, they 
soon gave up their trust after waking the 
next morning to find their cars settling 
up to the windshield in the fill that had 
been above ground level the night before. 

There have also been some ugly inci- 
dents between some residents and the 
sewer men. Many were shocked one day 
to see one of the nicest and sweetest elder- 
ly ladies in the town running after a de- 
fenseless bulldozer, variously striking it 

with her broom and shouting at it for 
having run over her flower bed. 

Clean Country Air? 

Not only have the students and per- 
manent residents here been subjected to 
these and many other inconveniences, but 
each day a cloud of thick grey dust rises 
gracefully to blanket Annville. It would 
seem that this town, though not blessed 
with a Con Edison smokestack, can, 
after all, have some of the privileges of 
the big city. 

The sewers should be completely in- 
stalled, barring any speed-up in the work, 
by 1970. Until then, cars which ride low 
to the ground will leave their mufflers 
and other accessories in the artfully re- 
paved streets, while drivers and their 
passengers will have their stomachs 

scrambled when riding over roads re- 
cently invaded by progress. It goes with- 
out saying that Annville needs sewers, 
but does it necessarily follow that the 
town should be turned into a no-man's 
land in order to get them? 

Temporarily at least, spring has been 
detoured from Annville. If it does come 
to Lebanon Valley College this year, the 
moonstruck faces of those infected with 
the accompanying disease will be in the 
minority, for both students and faculty. 

Summer VISTA Offers 
Numerous Opportunities 

There is opportunity in the War On 
Poverty this summer for concerned per- 
sons who are willing to volunteer a few 
months of their time and a lot of their 
talent to the task of working with people 
who need them. 

Men and women from virtually all 
callings are invited to apply for the Volun- 
teers In Service To America (VISTA) 
Summer Program which will send VISTA 
Associates to work in concentrated groups 
in target areas of the nation where too 
little food, too little income, and too little 
education have left their indelible stamp 
on too many people. 

The VISTA Associates Program needs 
men and women who are deeply concern- 
ed about poverty's bitter legacy and who 
want to do something about it. Such 
persons may be college and university 
students, teachers or professional persons 
who cannot, for sound reasons, devote 
a full year of their time to the regular 
one-year VISTA Program. 

Some of the projects which will be 
manned by VISTA Associates are Ap- 
palachia, where volunteers will work in 
the Southern Mountains in a program 
which will build on the 1966 experiences; 
Job Corps, where associates will work in 
125 Job Corps Centers concentrating on 
teaching remedial reading, math and 
language skills and serve as counselors 
to corpsmen and women; urban slums 
where VISTA associates have been re- 
quested to work in target areas of urban 
ghettos, where they will work in teams 
and concentrate on recreation education, 
block improvement, and health.

Some More Equal 

(Reader's Digest): Former U. S. Information Agency Director Carl 
Rowan says that class conflict among Negro groups is more to blame than 
racial strife for continued turmoil in our cities. Rowan writes that civil- 
rights progress in the last two decades, while dramatic, has failed to touch 
the lives of most American Negroes. 

As a result, a gap has opened between the few Negroes who have 
made it and the many who have not, "with Negroes at the bottom of the 
social ladder working against Negoes at the upper end as vigorously as they 
work against whites." 

"These Negroes who have not shared in the general postwar economic 
progress in America are vulnerable to demagogic cries that all Negroes who 
have prospered have sold their souls to the white man," he writes. "And 
because the birth rate among low-income Negroes is higher than among 
high-income Negroes, the ranks of the impoverished, poorly educated, 
frustrated Negro are growing faster." 

A Negro with one to four years of 
schooling earns only $382 for every $1000 
earned by his better-prepared brother. 
The contrast with whites is even greater. 
U.S. Census Bureau figures show that 
whites with a high-school diploma earn, 
on the average, $2,031 more than similar- 
ly educated Negroes. Add "some college 
training" and the gap stretches to $2,850. 

Paid less when he works, the Negro is 
usually first to be squeezed out when jobs 
are tight. In recent years unemployment 
among white teen-agers has reached al- 
most 12 percent, but among Negro young- 
sters it has soared to 25 percent. 

"In every racial outburst these frus- 
trated, unemployed youths are in the 
vanguard. This," according to Rowan, "is 
the Negro America that the parade of 
progress has bypassed, leaving an ugly 
pall of desperation." 

Rowan argues that the key to real op- 
portunity for Negro masses in the future 
lies in providing them with enough edu- 
cation and technical training to halt the 
increase in the ranks of the under- 
educated. For while the "undereducated" 
white person can often find a job the 
"undereducated" Negro generally cannot. 

"The great need now is ample op- 
portunity for the Negro in the blue-collar 
world that gives sustenance to such a 
large percentage of the population." Meet- 
ing that need "involves the simple, day- 
to-day business of educating colored 

children in decent schools; of opening 
unions to apprenticeship training, and 
our businesses and factories to on-the- 
job training." 

Economics Class Tours 
Lebanon Offices, Court 

On Wednesday, March 15, the business 
law class of Judge Thomas Gates toured 
the Lebanon County Municipal Building 
at the invitation of Judge Gates. 

The class was guided through the of- 
fices of the Recorder of Deeds, the Sher- 
iff, the Prothonotary, and the Assessor. 
The functions and purposes of the vari- 
ous offices were explained. 

Other parts of the building, such as the 
Law Library, were inspected by the class. 

The class sat in on the court session 
held in the forenoon and presided over 
by Judge Gates. The charging of a jury 
before they retired to deliberate a case 
was witnessed by the class. After th e 
court session, the class had an opportu- 
nity to ask Judge Gates questions about 
the court proceedings just witnessed. 

The class ate lunch in the county jafl> 
using the same utensils and eating th* 
same food as that given to the prisoners'

Symposium and Convocation Bring To A Close 

Lebanon Valley's Year-Long Centennial Celebration 

Rick Buek hosts Dr. Garret's stay on 
campus during the Symposium. Dr. Gar- 
ret was one of the many visiting profes- 
sors who served as discussion leaders dur- 
ing the two day symposium. 

Dean Ehrhart, left, and Dr. Mund, acting president, second from right, talk with 
the three guest speakers for the symposium Thursday and Friday: Kenneth Boulding, 
second from left; Dr. Huston Smith, center; and Dr. Charles Price, right. 

Representatives from over 250 institu- 
tions and national societies join the Board 
of Trustees, faculty, and student leaders in 
the academic procession at the Convoca- 
tion marking the close of Lebanon Val- 
ley's Centennial observation. 

Man And The Future 

Resumes of the four speeches presented at the April 6 through 8 
Symposium and Convocation, which concluded the Centennial celebrations, 
are presented below. — Ed. 

Speaking first at Lebanon Valley's Centennial symposium was Dr. 
Huston Smith, who represented the Humanities. 

Dr. Smith's speech was concerned with the individual, and he men- 
tioned and elaborated on five points, that we create life, minds, adjusted 
individuals, the good society and the religious life. 

Before continuing with the individual, Dr. Smith discussed science 
and its relation to life. "What we seem to be finding is the more control 
we obtain over life the greater, comparably, are the problems which then 
face us." By this he meant we must not allow science to control us, but to 
have some surrendering. He further explained this by saying that "science 
can relieve distress. Whether it can bestow happiness is a very different 

Next Dr. Smith spoke about Society, 
the social sciences, and the relation of 
the individual's life to each. In former 
times nature used to be man's environ- 
ment, but now it is Society. Society itself 
has changed for it is like a trap, Dr. 
Smith feels, even though most people do 
not realize it. 

For the individual, something is need- 
ed beyond what science and the Society 
can give. Dr. Smith stressed that we 
need to "found our lives." People have 
a "bundle of needs," practical ones as 
food, sleep and shelter, and passional 
needs, as emotions and feelings. Al- 
though "the intellect is doing brilliantly 
in fulfilling the practical side of our 
nature it is falling down seriously in the 
companion task of helping to fulfill the 
Passional side of our nature." 

The basic problem of the next century, 
according to Dr. Smith, concerns the 
needs of the individual's life and how 
these needs may be aided. 

Dr. Charles C. Price presented the 
viewpoint of science at the symposium by 
giving some impacts of the scientific 
^volution on the future's economy, poi- 
ses and philosophy. Philosophy, Dr. 
^ r 'ce feels, is the most significant of the 
mree because it deals with life itself. 

First, Dr. Price discussed the effects 
JjPon the economy. In time "a relative 
nandful of people working at the present 
^ate may soon be able to produce the 
b °unty of goods to run our modern 
c ivilized society." Dr. Price suggested 
hat with the increased leisure time due 
to this Man will devote himself more to 
e( hication, arts and recreation. 

As part of the technological progress 
ba s come the power to destroy. With this 

power to destroy is the threat of war. 
In Dr. Price's opinion the war trap "is 
indeed not inevitable and inescapable. 
It is not a natural tendency of Mankind. 
Conflict and controversy indeed, but war, 

Through detailed illustrations, using 
scientific jargon, Dr. Price explained a 
theory of the origin of life, the function 
of the living system and the possibility of 
man's creation of life. 

Dr. Kenneth E. Boulding spoke on his 
belief that the most striking phenomenon 
of the last 200 years is the super culture — 
a result of a "small European sub-culture 
beginning in the sixteenth or seventeenth 
century, which we call science." It has 
resulted in a knowledge explosion which 
has been going on for the past 300 years 
and of which we are in the midst. This 
knowledge explosion explains the rise in 
power of what might be called the At- 
lantic Civilization relative to older civili- 
zations such as China. 

Where the super culture exists it ex- 
plains the increase in per capita incomes, 
the change in the structure of the econ- 
omy, and the increased incidence and 
destructiveness of war. 

"The super culture is that aspect of 
human life and society which is con- 
cerned with science and the technology 
which has come of it." It is greatly con- 
cerned with the schools and universities 
that transmit the folk culture. 

There is constant tension between the 
super culture and the folk culture; 
sometimes creative, sometimes destruc- 
tive. No man has a complete identity 
with the super culture; every chemist

Mrs. Yeiser Joins 
LV Nurses' Staff 

A new nurse, Mrs. Margie Yeiser, has 
joined the LVC staff as a replacement for 
the late Mrs. Tredick. 

After graduating from the Harrisburg 
Polyclinic Hospital in 1935, Mrs. Yeiser 
spent four years as a state public health 
nurse. At Pittsburgh she worked in orth- 
opedics in connection with the Leetsdale 
Crippled Children's Hospital. 

Mrs. Yeiser continued her nursing 
career by working in doctors' offices for 
a number of years, and then journeyed to 
the Elizabethtown Masonic Home hos- 
pital. From 1960-1966, Mrs. Yeiser was 
on private duty as a member of the Har- 
risburg Professional registry. After a 
brief stay at Cedar Haven as a super- 
visor for the aged, Mrs. Yeiser came to 
Lebanon Valley as the school nurse. 

Jazz Band Places First 
In Lycoming Contest 

by Helen Kowach 

Lebanon Valley College can be proud of its Phi Mo Alpha Sinfonia 
Jazz band. Friday evening, April 14, the band members travelled to Ly- 
coming College to enter the Sixth Annual Intercollegiate Music Competi- 
tion, sponsored by the Student Union Board of Lycoming College. The 
boys gave it all they had, and walked off with first place in the Jazz 

For their efforts, the Valley musicians were awarded $250. Taking 
second place was the Dick Oelkers Trio of Susquehanna University. Third 
place was won by the Esquires of Mansfield State College. 

Those students who heard the Jazz 
Band perform know how great they 
sound. Under the direction of Rip Pos- 
ten, they spend many hours practicing 
diligently to turn out the fine perform- 
ances they are known for. 

The LVC Jazz Band chooses its reper- 
toire from all significant forces in 
mainstream jazz today. Although the band 
is run by Sinfonia, several non-Sinfonians 
are regular members. Made up of both 
music and non-music majors, the band is 

LVC Summer Sessions 
Offer Varied Subjects 

The Summer Session at college this 
year will include two six-week sessions,

band directors and advanced players. 

The class schedule for the first session, 
starting Monday, June 12, will include 
courses in economics, education, English, 
French, geography, and German. Also 
offered are history, mathematics, music, 
philosophy, political science, psychology, 
religion, and Spanish. 

The second session will begin Monday, 
July 24, and will offer courses in educa- 
tion, English, geography, mathematics, 
music, philosophy, and religion. Two 
courses in art will also be offered — be- 
ginning painting and history and apprec- 
iation of art. 

Several courses in biology, general 
biology, genetics, and animal physiology 
will be given in the science session, 
which opens June 12. Principles of chem- 
istry and special problems of chemistry 
are also included. 

open to anyone with an interest in jazz 
who can qualify during tryouts. 

Besides its annual campus concert, the 
band plays throughout Pennsylvania, ap- 
pearing before various organizations as 
well as on other college campuses. 

Weekends Feature 
Variety of Activity 

Besides showers and flowers, April also 
brings to mind fraternity and sorority 
weekends. This year, the Knights of the 
Valley started things off with their annual 
dinner-dance, Saturday evening, April 15. 

Held at the Holiday Inn Town in Har- 
risburg, the eevning began with dinner 
at 7 p.m., followed by installation of offi- 
cers and a speech by Coach Jerry Pet- 
rofes. The evening's activities concluded 
with dancing to music provided by Buck 
Jones and his band, from Harrisburg. 

This Saturday, April 22, Kalo and 
Delphian will sponsor several activities 
in connection with K-D Weekend. A car 
rally is to be held Saturday morning, 
followed by a picnic at Oak Lane, the 
home of Ann Prescott, a Delphian sister. 
Saturday evening is the annual dinner- 
dance at the Lebanon Country Club, for 
all Kalo and Delphian members and 
their dates. 

Philo and Clio take the stage in the 
third of the big weekends. Activities for 
Philo-Clio Weekend begin Friday even- 
ing, April 28, with bowling and an out- 
ing at Hershey Park. Saturday morning a 
50 mile car rally is planned, followed by 
a picnic in Hershey. Saturday evening, 
the weekend activities will conclude with 
the dinner-dance, to be held at the Hotel 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, April 20, 1967 

Hope For The Future 

As another school year slowly begins to sink over the horizon of 
higher learning, one's thoughts tend toward visions of freedom from 
thought, coercion, and a general end to all academic activities. 

But before we take leave of our senses (academic), it might be worth- 
while to take one final glimpse at the stalwart bastion of the school which 
keeps us all from falling into the innermost reaches of paganism — the 
weekly Chapel service. 

In spite of an occasionally interesting and stimulating presentation, 
our Chapel program lumbers along, week after week, keeping us up to date 
on the very latest Old Testament thought. 

Our weekly Chapel service does not stop with mere lectures, however. 
Aside from being told in no uncertain terms that we are permitted but five 
excused absences from that all-important fifth column in our education, 
we are further intimidated by being told during which period we may take 
three absences, and during which period we may take two. 

Since we are excused from less than one third of all the Chapel 
services each semester, a sufficiently large carrot must be dangled before 
our faces to make us attend. This carrot is really an anti-carrot-carrot 
because, though no on really wants to get it, one doesn't dare ignore it. 

The student who finds the lure of the carrot unappealing soon finds 
that each absence over five that he takes per semester, may qualify him to 
take another credit hour of work before he gets his diploma. 

To those of us who are having trouble getting the 120 credit hours 
necessary for graduation, it may well seem that an extra thirty minutes of 
freedom is not worth having to do an extra hour's work the next semester 
to atone for the crime. 

Old Testament scholars in our midst will no doubt agree that this idea 
of exacting a pound of flesh for a peccadillo is quite in keeping with the 
fifth century B.C. idea of "an eye for an eye."* 

Much as some of our academic community hate to admit it, we are in 
the latter half of the twentieth century A.D., and such punishments are at 
least supposed to be passe. 

It would be nice to see the Chapel program move into the twentieth 
century by following these four simple steps. 

First, try harder to bring speakers other than the followers of the 
plow we have been treated to in past years. Second, do not tell us during 
which periods we may cut. Third, give us two more cuts per semester (if 
you can't fulfill step No. 1). Fourth, make the penalty for an extra Chapel 
cut less severe. Something like taking away all cuts for a semester after a 
certain number of extra cuts could still satisfy the more vengeful in the 

Of course, by bringing interesting speakers on campus, the need for 
steps two, three and four is conveniently eliminated. We really are cap- 
able of being stimulated — try us. — P.p. 

Letters To La Vie 

To Students and Faculty: 

On behalf of the Centennial Sympos- 
ium and Convocation Committee, I wish 
to express our appreciation to all mem- 
bers of the College family who par- 
ticipated in the final events of the Col- 
lege Centennial Celebration, April 6 to 
8, 1967. 

To those who did specific jobs — over 
two hundred of you — our heartfelt 
thanks. We could not have done it with- 
out your help. 

To those who attended the Sympos- 
ium, the Group Discussions, the recital, 
the reception, and joined the special 
tables in the Dining Hall, also our grati- 
tude, for without your presence the cele- 
bration would have been meaningless. 
Sincerely yours, 
Elizabeth M. Geffen 
Associate Professor of 

Chairman, Centennial 
Symposium and Convocation 
To the Editor: 

There is, on this campus, a disease 
which seems to have permeated the thin 
skulls of 90% of our pitiful student body. 

The disgusting melange of letters to 
the newspaper concerning lack of social 
life, dull weekends, impassioned pleas for 
dates from the girls, has been a frail, 
deceptive screen thrown up by those who 
feign dissatisfaction for the status quo. 

Friday (April 14), the freshmen open- 
ed their coffee house. After long, ardu- 
ous months of preparation, they gave to 
the campus the nearest semblance of a 
student union you may see for two or 
three years. 

For the ridiculous cost of one quarter, 
the students could purchase something 
they are supposedly starved for. That is 
— a common, neutral ground where they 
could socialize. For the first time, the 
men had a chance to meet the feminine 
contingent in an atmosphere other than 
that in the austere Carnegie Lounge, the 
noisy dining hall (where the sexes segre- 
gate themselves anyway) or the fallow

Vacuity Notes 

Dr. Barnard H. Bissinger, Chairman of 
the Department of Mathematics, will be 
a visiting lecturer at five area high 
schools during the final two months of 
the current school year. 

Dr. Bissinger, who heads a program 
under the sponsorship of the National

Dr. Ralph S. Shay will attend the spring 
meeting of the Modern European His-

universities whose instructors in history 
are members of the association. 

Dr. Elizabeth M. Geffen, Associate 
Professor of History, has been elected a 
member of "The Fellows in American 
Studies," a group of college professors of 
all academic disciplines in the American 
field, coming chiefly from Swarthmore, 
Haverford, Bryn Mawr, the University of 
Pennsylvania, Temple University, and 
Princeton. Organized twenty years ago 
in Philadelphia, this group dedicates it- 
self to the promotion of the inter-dis- 
ciplinary approach to the study of Amer- 
ican culture. 

The American Studies Association is 
now organized at colleges and universities 
throughout the United States, Europe, 
and Asia, although the parent group, to 
which Dr. Geffen was elected, restricts it- 
self to less than one hundred members. 

A Fitting Close 

The Centennial celebration is over. If nothing else, it was indeed an 
outward success, as was evidenced by the presence of large numbers of 
students at the voluntary programs on Friday and Saturday. 

But, something more tangible than the mere presence of "warm 
bodies" seems required to test the true success of the events of the three- 
day celebration. Those of us who left the lectures and the discussion 
groups without the feeling of some intellectual stimulation were sorely 
cheated of some valuable time that probably would have been spent more 
profitably at some less taxing endeavor. 

Yet, there were many who left the Chapel lectures on Thursday and 
Friday unstimulated. This was not because the lecturers were uninterest- 
ing, but because they could barely be heard beyond the middle row of the 
orchestra section, and were inaudible to almost all seated in the balcony. 

It is unfortunate that the sound system was not properly adjusted 
during most of the Symposium. One certainly has a legitimate complaint 
when he is compelled to attend a function, but is not even able to hear the 
lecture that is being presented. 

Nevertheless, this unpleasant experience should not be allowed to 
detract from the excellent speakers or the lectures they presented. 

The Centennial was a success, both in stimulating the students and 
faculty, and in bringing to a fitting close one hundred years of higher 
education on the part of Lebanon Valley College. 

The next event of intellectual and aesthetic consequence to look 
forward to is the Great Artist Series. Perhaps future plans will permit the 
musical programs to be interspersed with well-known and controversial 
speakers. The students attending this college should not have to wait 
another hundred years for the thoughts of speakers of the caliber of Smith, 
Price, Boulding and Commager. — P.P. 

The Centennial 

In Retrospect 

by Bobbie Gable 

The Centennial celebration ended with three days of activity — the 
Symposium and the Convocation. 

The Symposium tied together outlooks for natural sciences, social 
sciences, and humanities. Many new ideas were presented and many 
questions asked to initiate thinking in the broad area of "The Next Cen- 
tury: Crisis and Opportnuity." 

Comments, mostly favorable, ranged from "a nice way to get out of 
classes" to "something we should do all the time." One student, while 
talking about Chad and Jeremy said that she would rather pay $2.75 to 
hear Dr. Boulding again. The almost 20% of the student body attending 
discussion groups felt the time for discussion went much too fast and were 
very much in favor of more discussion groups or longer time periods allot- 
ted for discussion. 

Professors, C. F. Joseph Tom, Robert 
C. Riley, and Milton Stokes of the De- 
partment of Economics and Business 
Administration recently attended the 22nd 
Annual Field Meeting of the Federal 
Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. Held at the 
Hotel Hershey, the program included 
talks on the matter of business cycles, 
future monetary policy, and changes in 
basic policies of commercial banks. These 
talks were presented by Dr. David East- 
burn, vice-president, and other members 
of the Bank. 

After gaining jive pounds this past 
week on dining hall food, I'm begin- 
ing to wish they'd go back to the 
inedible. — Anonymous. 

Interested in taking the Peace Corps 
Placement Test? See Ron Zygmunt, 
West Hall, for information. 

Below are opinions of students on the 
activities of those three days. 

Ronald Zygmunt: I think that the Sym- 
posium was a very fitting conclusion to 
the Centennial because, generally, it gave 
the student body a chance to withdraw 
from the anxieties of tests and term pa- 
pers for a few days to put to use their 
liberal educations in comprehending the 
challenge of the upcoming century. I am 
sorry that the freshmen were burdened 
with English papers due the Monday af- 
ter Symposium. I blame the English de- 
partment for any frosh who thought the 
Symposium was a waste of time. For, 
certainly, it was probably the most worth- 
while event we will see in our years at 

The most exciting part of the Sym- 
posium was the Friday discussion groups. 
For those who attended the chemistry 
discussion the topics presented by the 
main speakers were challenging and many 
questions remain unanswered. I know the 
same was true of the biology discussion 
and sure that this was the case in the 
social sciences and humanities. 

We may not yet know the truth, but 
we are searching for it and therefore, we 
are free. 

Eugene Katzman: Dr. Boulding was by 
far the most colorful speaker but I felt 
that Dr. Commager had the most to say 
— the most significant message. All were 
quite thought provoking. 

I felt the handling of attendance could 
have been better. By stressing the im- 
portance of the event, encouraging stu- 
dents to attend, the college could have 
avoided the mandatory attendance and 
attendance slips. Compulsion destroys 
the idea of a liberal arts college. 

Helen Templin: I feel the Symposium 
was a very worthwhile program. It had 
something to offer everyone; everyone, 
that is, who was interested. A large num- 
ber of students closed their minds before 
they had even entered the chapel, just 
because they were required to go. The 
fact that all three speakers philosophized 
tended to aim the program at one group. 
A Symposium is supposed to be a learn- 
ing experience. I think it was unfortunate 
that there could not have been a better 
climate set for allowing the audience to 
ask questions of the three scholars during 
their panel discussion. The Symposium 
was unquestionably worthwhile. What 
was to be gained from it, however, de- 
pened on the participants themselves. 

A Forward Step 

La Vie wishes to congratulate the administration for permitting the 
freshmen class to open and operate on their own an unchaperoned coffee 
house open to the entire student body. 

It is just this type of forward-looking thinking on the part of the ad- 
ministration that will help to bring this school out of its "social grave- 

In taking on this responsibility, the freshmen have shown themselves 
to be an eager, hardworking group, and a great asset to this college. 

It is now the responsibility of everyone to safeguard this new privilege. 
Our maturity will ensure that more and more liberal rulings are handed 
down by the administration in the future. 

We are, in effect, on trial with this coffee house. A refusal to accept 
responsibility, and some acts of immaturity on our part, could cause the 
administration to take two steps back for the one step forward it recently 

It is now our turn to show that we are worthy of what the freshmen 
have done.

Adminisiration Appoints 
Director Of Publications 

Mrs. Ann Monteith has recently been 
appointed as Director of Publications for 
Lebanon Valley College. Mrs. Monteith, 
a 1965 graduate of Bucknell, came to 
Lebanon Valley in April, 1966 as an as- 
sistant in College relations. 

In addition to the appointment as di- 
rector, which includes the editorship of 
such publications as the Alumni Review 
and the college catalogue, Mrs. Monteith 
serves as advisor to the Quittie. 

Smith Leads Linksmen 
With Lowest Average 

The Lebanon Valley golf team has 
had some trouble, thus far, in getting on 
the winning side. Their record to date 
is no wins and five losses. However, two 
of the losses have been by 10-8 scores. 
The results: Albright, HVi - LVC, 6V2; 
Moravian, 10 - LVC, 8; Juniata 16 - 
LVC, 2; Western Maryland, IOV2 - LVC, 
IVi; Elizabethtown, 10 - LVC, 8. There 
are seven matches remaining. 

Captain Walt Smith has the lowest 
shots-per-round average at 78.7, and is 
1-4 in matches. The rest of the team in 
order of the position played are: Terry 
Light, 81.7 average and 3-2 record; Bill 
Cadmus, 81.3 and 3-2; Jon Hofmann, 
83.7 and 1-2-2; Sam Willman, 90.0 and 

0- 5; and Bromley Billmeyer, 88.7 and 

1- 4. 

Cadmus leads the team with 10 points, 
followed by Light with 8, Hofmann with 
6, Billmeyer with 4, Smith with 3, and 
Willman with 1. 

In the match against Albright and 
Moravian, Smith shot a 79. Again at 
Juniata he made a 77 against his op- 
ponent's 76. The only other sub-80 round 
was Cadmus' 77 against Western Mary- 
land and Elizabethtown. 

Home matches are scheduled for April 
18th against F&M and Lycoming, and for 
April 25th against Muhlenberg and Johns 
Hopkins. They will be played at 2 p.m. 
on the Lebanon County Club course.

18' IIV2", and the triple jump with a 
total jump of 38' 4V2". Painter caught a 
first place with a throw of 41' 1%". 
Welsh took the 120-yard high hurdles in 
a time of 16.6. The 440-yard dash was 
also won by Lebanon Valley. The victor 
for Valley was Martalus in a winning 
time of 55.3. Horst of Valley took the 
pole vault event with a jump of 11' 6". 
The javelin event winner was from 
Johns Hopkins; however, Painter and 
Greiner took second and third, respect- 
ively. Willauer continued the winning 
ways of Valley by taking the 880-yard 
event in a time of 2:03. Johns Hopkins 
took their second event of the day when 
they captured the 440-yard intermediate 
hurdles. The high jump event and the 
discus were both taken by Johns Hopkins. 
However Ken Bunting and Alan Shenk of 
LVC took second and third in the high 
jump in which the winning jump was 
5' 8". Baldwin and Painter took second 
and third in the discus event in whcih 
the winning throw was 117' 4". The mile 
relay was also taken by Lebanon Valley 
in 3:36.1. Dinger, McClary, Kamuyu, 
Zart, Micka, Newmaster, Womer, Light 
and Davis also scored points for the 
winning team.

Dutchmen Beat Mules 
In Lacrosse Encounter 

Dr. Hollingsworth Dies; 
Was School Counselor 

The lacrosse team has played four 
games so far this season. Last season the 
Dutchmen lost 9-7 to Lafayette in over- 
time, but this year they went on to beat 
them 4-2 on the home field. The other 
Saturday, the Valley stickmen lost a hard- 
fought game to the Villanova Wildcats 
10-8. This is the best team on LV's 
schedule this year and through hustling, 
hard hitting and desire the Valley boys 
almost beat them. With six minutes to go 
the score was 8-8, but the Wildcats pulled 
out to win over the Dutchmen. The next I 
game was with Delaware which the 
Dutchmen lost 8-5. At half the score was 
3-3; in the third period it had increased 
to 5-5, but the Delaware boys pull- 
ed ahead to win in the final period 
of play. Last year the Dutchmen lost to 
Villanova 11-7 and to Delaware 12-5. 

Saturday, April 15, the Dutch stickmen 
took on the Mules from Muhlenberg. 
The Valley ran all over their opponents 
and showed their hustle, hitting ability, 
and skill to the home fans. The score at 
half time was 5-0 ,in Valley's favor. As 
the game went into the third period, the 
LV stickmen ran the score up to 9 while 
the Mules managed to score two goals. 
The fourth period was again dominated 
by the Dutchmen who added two more 
goals to run the total up to 11, while 
the Mules added one more goal to their 
side of the score sheet. The final score 
was LV 11, Muhlenberg 3. 

Scoring for the Valley at the Muhlen- 
berg game was led by Jim Evans, who 
had 3 goals. Following with two goals 

The Lebanon Valley College family 
was saddened by the death, on April 18, 
of Dr. Harold C. Hollingsworth, Associ- 
ate Professor of Psychology. Dr. Hol- 
lingsworth served as senior minister of 
First EUB Church of Palmyra. 

A 1937 graduate of Lebanon Valley 
with a Bachelor of Arts Degree, Dr. 
Hollingsworth received his B.D. from 
United Theological Seminary, Dayton, in 
1940, and his S.T.D. from Temple Uni- 
versity in 1951. 

Rev. Hollingsworth received his resi- 
dent and clinical training in the Depart- 
ment of Psychology at Temple Univer- 
sity School of Medicine and the Phila- 
delphia Psychoanalytical Institute. This 
was his fourth semester at the Valley, 
having joined the faculty in September, 
1965. He also served as director of the 
school's Psychological Counseling Ser- 
vice, which was initiated this semestet 
and available to all students. 

A funeral service for Dr. Hollingsworth 
will be held Friday afternoon in First 
EUB Church in Palmyra. To facilitate 
attendance at this service, classes will be 
cancelled from 12 noon on.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, April 20, 1967 

Spring has sprung and I've found at least one flower hidden on the LVC campus. It was hard to find but, to me, that tulip represents the Spring when students' hard-worked minds 
temporarily take vacations from a cold winter's work. Boys go fly kites while the girls bask in the sun's rays. Two men explore the coffee house — another one climbs a near-by tree. 
Some students participate in extra-curricular sports. Regardless of our springtime activities and eccentricities, the impending doom of final exams looms five weeks in the near 
future which should be filled with blue skies, warm days, and pleasant thoughts. 


(Continued from Page 1) 
is also an American or Russian, father or 
son, etc. Nearly everyone has one foot 
in the super culture and the other foot 
in the folk culture, and this straddle 
often creates strain. 

Neither the super culture nor the folk 
culture should be considered all good or 
all bad. As Dr. Boulding stated, ". . . per- 
haps the major problem of the 20th 
century is how to make this interaction 
between the folk culture and the super 
culture creative instead of destructive." 

Through Dr. Boulding's somewhat 
humorous presentation quite a few 
thought-provoking points were given. 

Dr. Henry Steele Commager, in his 
address during the closing convocation of 
the Lebanon Valley College Centennial, 
April 8, spoke on "The Academy: Crisis 
and Opportunity." 

In his speech, Dr. Commager referred 
to schools and colleges collectively as the 
Academy. He compared the Academy of 
today with that of yesterday, and traced 
historical developments which have 
brought about that change. 

During the past twenty-five years the 
Academy has become, to a great extent, 
the center of our world. It is expected to 
educate almost everybody in almost every- 
thing. Its graduates are expected to be 
able to cope with the problems of science, 
government, general welfare, politics, for- 
eign affairs, and even military affairs. 

Dr. Commager asked the question, 
"Can the Academy play all the roles, 
provide all the services, fulfill all the 
functions which are expected of it, and 
still survive as an institution dedicated 
to the search for truth?" He feels that 
there is too much pressure on institutions 
of higher learning. Besides the push to 
solve everyday domestic social, and 
economic problems, there is the ever- 
increasing practice of using the university 
to bolster government policies, to fight 
wars, to make peace. 

In the speaker's opinion, there is a 
definite difference between a college 
and a university. A college trains the 
young in both mind and character, but 
the university has become merely a train- 
ing ground for professionals, with less 

Jamanis, Wife Perform 
For Pickwell Concert 

The Delta Alpha chapter of Sigma Al- 
pha Iota will present Michael Jamanis 
and Frances Veri, duo-pianists, in con- 
cert on Sunday, April 23, at 3 p.m. in 
Engle Hall. 

The concert is the fraternity's annual 
Pickwell Benefit Concert, given in mem- 
ory of Miss Marcia Pickwell. Prior to her 
death in 1963, Miss Pickwell was a mem- 
ber of the faculty of Lebanon Valley 
College and a charter member of Sigma 
Alpha Iota. Proceeds from the concert 
are used to establish a scholarship given 
to a worthy female student in the music 

and less emphasis placed on the educa- 
tion of the mind and character. 

The major threat to colleges and uni- 
versities today is from government, 
which constantly demands that the 
Academy serve the nation before itself. 
This puts schools in a dilemma, because 
of the dependence of many schools on 
federal subsidation. Although the govern- 
ment has so far not intervened, the 
threat is there constantly. 

Dr. Commager then went on to out- 
line the historical developments which 
have brought about the changes in the 
Academy. Our own nation came into 
being during the Enlightenment, the per- 
iod from which we claim much of our 
heritage and which emphasized "the idea 
of the universal nature of science and 
culture." But, more and more, the circum- 
stances of modern life demand that 
science be directly involved in war and 

This, Dr. Commager feels, is bad. It 
is the most difficult problem facing Amer- 
ican education today. He says, "American 
educators, scholars, scientists . . . must 
continue and strengthen that association 
with government which has brought about 
such rich rewards to the cause of science, 
without permitting government to debase 
science for narrow and selfish and short- 
sighted ends. They must continue to serve 
the needs of our own people, our own 
society, without failing to serve the needs 
of mankind everywhere on the globe."

miasma of "Hot Dog's." 

Lebanon Valley, you have, in effect, 
slapped the freshmen. You have extin- 
guished what was a tiny speck of light in 
an otherwise beclouded and musky hori- 
zon. You have crushed a refreshing rar- 
ity on this campus — an attempt to bring 
pleasure without seeking requitement. 
The mistake of the unselfish, outward- 
thinking class of 1970 was trying to give 
something gratis to a predominantly in- 
ward-thinking student body who thought 
that the 25tf and the hundred yards-long 
walk was too much to pay for a fleeting 
glimpse of what life can be like in a real 

This has served to prove a long-sus- 
pected theory. The disease of which I 
speak is not one of Pennsylvania, Ann- 
ville, or even this school. It ferments in 
the individual students who strive to cre- 
ate the rank, lackadaisical atmosphere in 
which they gaily and masochistically live.

To the Editor: 

So many people feel it necessary to 
complain about mistakes or improper 
activities; I feel it is also a responsibility 
for us to praise a job well done. 

The recent displays in the library show 
cases of books, magazine articles, pam- 
phlets, and photographs of the Sym- 
posium speakers are fine examples of 
someone trying to present vital informa- 
tion in an interesting manner. It clearly 
took time to locate all those publications 
and to arrange them significantly. Thank 
you whoever was foresighted and re- 
sponsible enough to provide the College 
with this extra material.

In reply to Lenny's plea for help from 
the girls of Mary Green (third floor 
variety), I would have to agree that they 
do seem to be a small bit lonely at night. 
However, as representative of the Men's 
Tiger Association, I would like to inform 
these poor females that many of us have 
tried to sneak up to the third floor just 
to be with them. These same desperate 
girls have promptly reported us and had 
us ejected. My brothers and I envy you,

Ford Remodels 
Ph.D. Programs 

CPS — A major experimental program 
aimed at reforming doctoral education 
in the social sciences and the humanities 
was announced recently by ten leading 
university graduate schools and the Ford 

According to a statement released by 
the deans of the graduate schools in- 
volved, the purpose of the program is to 
"stimulate more coherent doctoral pro- 
grams and to eliminate obsolete require- 

The program will extend over the next 
seven years, with the assistance of $41.5 
million from the Ford Foundation and 
$160 million of the universities' own re- 
sources and government funds available 
to them. Approximately 10,500 Ph.D. 
students will be affected directly during 
the seven-year period. 

Administering the program will be the 
deans of the graduate schools of the uni- 
versities of California (Berkeley), Chi- 
cago, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wiscon- 
sin, and Cornell, Harvard, Princeton, 
Stanford, and Yale universities. 

The deans of the nine schools charged 
that the "major current weakness in 
doctoral education is its profligate wast- 
age of the nation's finest talent. This is 
particularly evident in the humanities 
and the social sciences." 

Fewer than 15 per cent of the gra- 
duate students in the humanities, the 
deans said, complete their doctorate in 
four years. 

The deans announced that the pilot 
program is intended to raise the quality 
of the Ph.D. by making more effective 
use of faculty resources through close

Shay Presides Today At 
Chinese - AmericanForum 

Dr. Ralph S. Shay has been selected to 
preside at one of the two afternoon ses- 
sions of the Thirteenth Annual Round 
Table Conference on Chinese-American 
Cultural Relations, to be held at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland on May 5. 

Professor Shay is the chairman of the 
program committee for this annual con- 
ference which is attended by over 200 
scholars of Chinese history, culture, and 
language, governmental representatives, 
and delegates from learned societies from 
throughout the United States. The theme 
of the conference this year is "The Great 
Proletarian Cultural Revolution on the 
China Mainland." 

This annual gathering is sponsored by 
the University of Maryland, China Insti- 
tute of America, the Sino-American Cul- 
tural Society, and the American Associ- 
ation of Teachers of Chinese Language 
and Culture. 

Following the conference at University 
Park, the members of the council will be 
the guests at dinner of the Republic of 
China to the United States, his Excellency 
Chow Shu-Kai, and will conduct their 
annual business meeting at the ambas- 
sadorial residence on the same evening. 

Group To Present 
"Clear Day" Musical 

Wig and Buckle will present On a Clear Day You Can See Forever 
next Friday and Saturday evenings, May 12 and 13, with curtain time 8:30 
each evening. Clear Day was written by Allen J. Lerner, who supplied 
book and lyrics for Brigadoon, My Fair Lady, and Camelot, with music by 
Burton Lane, who wrote the score for Finian's Rainbow. 

The musical, directed by D. Larry Bachtell, evolves around Daisy, 
played by Pixie Hunsicker, who has the ability to slip into a pre-existing 
state, that of 18 th century England, while under the hypnotic trance admin- 
istered by Dr. Mark Bruckner, a psychologist, portrayed by Max Hun- 
sicker. He becomes very interested in her case and eventually in her, but 
not without several complications. 

During Daisy's hypnotic scenes, the 
stage action shifts to 18th century Eng- 
land and Daisy's first life comes to being 
once more. Judy Donmoyer, Gary Mil- 
ler, Ron Poorman, Chuck Curley, Lynda 
Ferry, and Kay Gault fill out the cast in 
supporting roles. 

The play first opened in New York on 
October 17, 1965, to a mildly enthusias- 
tic critical reception, but the public en- 
joyed it and the music from it well 
enough to make it run the entire 1965-66 
Broadway season. 

Campus Hears Chaplain 
Of Air Force Academy

He has served in Iceland, Okinawa, 
Korea and England. In 1955 he was 
named Chief of the Activities Support 
Branch in the Office of the Chief of Air 
Force Chaplains, Washington, D.C. Dur- 
ing his four years at the Pentagon, 
Colonel Shoemaker originated the tele- 
vision program, "The Air Force Chapel of 
the Air" which provided worship services 
for military personnel in remote areas 
around the world including the South 

Colonel Shoemaker has received the 
Air Force Commendation Medal, the 
Presidential Unit Citation, the European 
Theater Campaign Medal, the Asiatic- 
Pacific Campaign Medal and the Korean 
Service Medal among many other honors. 

Current plans call for his leaving the 
Air Force Academy this July to assume 
duties as Staff Chaplain of the Seven- 
teenth Air Force with headquarters at 
Ramstein Air Base, Germany. His duty 
will include directing chaplains in units 
scattered throughout Germany, England, 
Italy, Holland and Libya. 

Musical director for On a Clear Day

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, May 5, 1967 


Whether or not the students who attended last week's Chapel pro- 
gram agreed with what Dr. Wethington had to say, it should have been 
apparent to everyone there that they were witnessing a revolution in 
Chapel lectures. 

For once, the subject was neither inane, boring, or poorly presented. 
Dr. Wethington's lecture was terrifyingly timely, interesting, and to the 

It was indeed refreshing to hear a speaker tackle a modern problem. 
Without a doubt, it was a refreshing change from the usual Sunday School 
rendition of the good Samaritan tale. 

It was also comforting to note that there are faculty members on this 
campus who are willing to speak their minds on the current world situa- 
tion. Unfortunately, the members of the faculty who do have something to 
say have not been asked to participate in our Chapel services. 

Perhaps it would be worthwhile for the students to offer some sug- 
gestions for faculty members (or outside talent) they would most like to 
hear. La Vie will be most happy to relay such information to those con- 
cerned with planning the Chapel programs. 

It is difficult to believe that some of the fat we were asked to digest in 
the form of boring, pedestrian lectures had to be ordered a year in 

With serious student help, the Chapel program could be trimmed of 
its excess fat, and a lean, appetizing schedule could be offered to the 
intellectually hungry student body. 

Let us hope that this revolution will not be nipped in the bud.

May 9, 10, 11. 

The motion picture of James Joyce's 
novel Ulysses has run into almost as 
much trouble as the novel itself. 

In its various openings, and sometimes 
premature closings in theaters around the 
nation, "Ulysses" has been banned here 
and applauded there; piously cut in some 
cities, unexpurgated in others. In short, 
the film, like the novel it is based on, is 

"Ulysses" is a a faithful attempt to 
recreate on the screen the essential ideas 
conveyed in a novel that ranks on a plane 
with Gone With the Wind for sheer 
wind, though not for literary content. 

In spite of the problems involved in 
trying to translate Joyce's stream of con- 
sciousness style of writing into some- 
thing presentable to the masses, this 
Walter Reade -Joseph Strick Production 
does an admirable job of coping with the 
difficulties inherent in the novel. 

Even if you're not interested in the

MAO TSE-TUNG, introduction by A. 
Doak Barnett. $1.00. 192 pp. Bantam 

Mao's immortal words have finally 
been translated into English for the bene- 
fit and enlightenment of the decadent 
West. This Bantam edition divides Mao's 
thought into 33 separate categories rang- 
ing from pearls of wisdom about the 
"Communist Party" to "Methods of 
Thinking and Methods of Work." 

The reader is treated to such optimistic 
thoughts as "All our officers and fighters 
must always bear in mind that we are the 
great People's Liberation Army, we are 
the troops led by the great Communist 
Party of China. Provided we constantly 
observe the directives of the Party, we 
are sure to win." 

Yet, beneath the surface of this rather 
ponderous tome of Chinese chauvanism, 
lies the basis for a movement that has 
dragged millions of people along with it 
in a crash drive to catch up with the 
twentieth century. 

Mao's thoughts are worth at least a 
casual perusal if only to see what the 
downtrodden masses of the world are 
looking to for inspiration. 


All students interested in applying for the position of News Editor on the 
1967-1968 La Vie Collegienne staff should get in contact with any member of the

Now that most of the "KEEP OFF THE GRASS" signs have been 
moved inside the dormitories to keep the paint from peeling in the rain, 
it would be nice to see the more mature members of the student body

campus jaywalkers. Anonymous

To the Editor: 

There has been recently evidenced on 
this campus a certain discordant farrago 
of perplexing behavior on the part of the 

There can be little doubt that the gov- 
erning powers of this school have been 
tightly fused by one common bond; that 
is extreme conservatism. The grasp 
wielded by the Administration oversees 
every facet of campus life from dormi- 
tory regulation to student entertainment. 
Its clenching goverment, in attempting 
to mold character, stifles its development 
by suppressing opportunity for co-stu- 
dent socializing. Its frowning estimation 
of modern music finds acceptable only 
big-name, equally conservative entertain- 
ment, while it rejects popular and in-de- 
mand entertainment. It is not only un- 
fathomably preposterous, but also finan- 
cially ludicrous, to pay to a mediocre, 
but well-established, group many times 
the salary of a well-known, money and 
crowd attracting, local group whose em- 
polyment would have a rewarding, rather 
than deleterious, effect on the school's 

I find it, then, refreshingly inconsistent 
that the domineering fist should have al- 
lowed several instances of surprisingly 
liberal escapes from the norm. The Sym- 
posium speakers and recently, the far 
from conservative Chapel messages have 
been slight indications of a possible slow 
reform in thinking on the part of the 
school's Administration. 

Rather than bitterly complain about 
conservatism, I think it would be more 
advantageous to prod the slowly chang- 
ing Administration and laud the improve- 
ments as they come. Complaints are in- 
effectual unless they are directed at the 
proper source and are reasonably substan- 
tiated and offer alternate colutions. This 
course of action has produced several im- 
provements in the Dining Hall. 

Too great a percentage of students are 
content to complain for the sake of doing 
so. They enjoy finger-pointing and 
would be unhappy if they could find no 
fault in something. These efforts and 
those who direct them are worthless. Few 
people are unaware of the inadequacies 
here. The school is expected to please 
each individual student. The difficulty lies 
in the fact that no student wants the same 
thing. Each wants to be entertained, ca- 
joled, and pampered in a different man- 
ner. No administration is responsible for 
making the student content; its business 
is operating a school. 

When subjects do arise which come 
under the auspices of our Administration, 
they should be brought to attention by 
suggesting, not demanding, a means of 
effecting the most desirable, popularly- 
supported solution. 

The decline from the apex is already 
under way. We have arrived at a point 
where the school is beginning to join the 
ranks of the colleges of today. It is be- 
ginning to shed its hundred years old 
thinking in favor of the more liberal and 

It is the responsibility of of the student 
body to work in conjunction with the Ad- 
ministration and not so far ahead of it 
that it appears to be dragging it into the 
20th century. If this is done, perhaps ev- 
eryone will painlessly enter it together in 
a short time.

Food For Thought 

(The News American; March 19, 1967) by Corinne Hammett 

In a University of Maryland dining hall there is a 7-foot-high "some- 
thing" composed of steel, tubes and fans that is destined to revolutionize 
the food service industry. 

It looks like a giant refrigerator, with one massive door. 

In 45 minutes "what's-its-name" can transform a solidly frozen block 
of beef stew weighing 40 pounds into a tempting, tasteful, bubbling hot 
entree. This stranger-than-science-fiction divic is the culmination of five 
years of work by Robert J. Spence, director, University Food Service and 
Larry Foster, Foster Refrigeration, Hudson, New York. 

The device, dubbed "re-con" for re-constitute (the bringing back of 
frozen foods) is deceptively simple in appearance. 

It is four feet wide and deep, contains about 10 shelves and has a 
small freezer compartment at the top. A maze of white tubes generates 
radiant heat up to 1-700 degrees causing the "browning" or re-constituting 

The thin, aluminum, paper-like cooking pots don't burn or even 
change color in the unit. This is due to the action of the freezer which 
emits blasts of cold air. 

"Somehow" fans inside the unit control a certain amount of convec- 
tion heat, which rises to 190 degres. It is this heat which bakes, broils, 
steams, fries and grills — in less than half the normal time. 

"In conventional kitchens menus are severely limited to your time 
and equipment. With this unit time means nothing, we can serve 25 
different, hot items for lunch. If we did this in a conventional kitchen the 
help would go through the roof." 

He [Spence] gives another example. "In the conventional kitchen 
if we were having pork chops for dinner we would start grilling chops at 
1:30 P.M. to have enough. They could be kept in a warmer and by dinner- 
time they would be dried out slabs. 

"Now we can serve the chops within 10 minutes after removing them 
from the 're-con.' " 

"Summer Sounds" fill the air as Chad 
and Jeremy entertain at LVC. 

All of the frozen dishes that go into 
the 'recon' are prepared according to 
precise recipes supplied by Spence to the 
manufacturers. "We buy all over the 
country, wherever we can get what we 

The freezing method is also a factor. 
Everything is nitrogen frozen, which is 
much faster than other methods used by 
the majority of frozen food manufac- 

"With the 're-con' we can take the 
money away from the rising labor costs 
and put it back in the food where it be- 

In the dining hall now using the unit 
only eight employees are needed. Prior 
to the "re-con" 22 employees were need- 

Spence did get another surprise, 
though. He found that food costs actually 
went down. 'There is no waste. In con- 
ventional kitchens we waste 43 percent 
of food through carelessness." 

Some statistics: During a one month 
period the "re-con" or "convenience" din- 
ing hall served 17,499 meals at a cost of 
79 cents each. (This includes costs of 
foods, disposable dinnerware, laundry, 
cleaning, kitchen utensils, labor and main- 
tenance of the "re-con.") 

During the same month another dining 
hall on the campus, using the conven- 

tional equipment served 17,297 meals at 
a cost of 92 cents each. 

Spence is something of a maverick in 
the food industry. 

He readily admits he's "stepped on a 
lot of toes" in doing away with what he 
terms "the stainless steel monuments that 
our institutional kitchens have become — 
the total system is rotten." 

He adds, "It's about time food service 
managers stopped crying about rising la- 
bor costs, wasted food, low productivity 
and labor shortages and started think- 

"It's the same everywhere, the food 
industry is paying for its ancient slavery 
when people worked long hours for no 
pay. Workers look down on this kind of 
work; that's why we get low perform- 

"Did you know that food service work- 
ers perform at only 40% percent capa-

persons from other institutions who were 
touring the "re-con" kitchen.) 

"You're paying $1.25 an hour, but 
you're really paying $4 when you add 
sick pay, vacations, insurance, food loss- 
es and low performance." 

"We decided to get rid of all those 
dirty plastic dishes, dirty china, and the

Record Stays Even 
For LV Cindermen 

Since the last report on the Lebanon 
Valley cindermen, they have competed 
in four meets. Three of these four in- 
volved three teams at one meet. 

Wednesday, April 19, Lebanon Valley 
was host to Western Maryland and Sus- 
quehanna. Valley took first by scoring 
83 points to runner-up Susquehanna, 
who had 61 points. Western Maryland 
took third by scoring 29 points. 

Jack Kauffman and Bob Martalus took 
first and second places, respectively, in 
the 100-yard dash for the Dutchmen. 
The winning time was 10.5. Kauffman 
followed up this win by taking another 
first place in the 220-yard dash with a 
time of 23.4. In the 440-yard dash, 
Larry Painter took a second. 

Kent Willauer captured first and Dick 
Williams took second in the Vi-mile 
event. Williams came right back and 
took a first in the mile in 4:49.3. The 
Dutchmen dominated the 2-mile event by 
taking second, third, and fourth; these 
were captured by Williams, Jim Davis, 
and Terry Nitka. 

The 120-high hurdles found the Dutch- 
men taking third and fourth. These were 
won by Bruce Welsh and John McClary. 
Valley continued racking up points with 
Glenn Horst taking second and Ron 
Newmaster taking fourth in the pole vault 
event. The LVC cindermen also took 
three places in the high jump. 

Larry Painter featured for Valley in 
the field events by taking second in the 
shot put, second in the discus, and an-

Students Tour Heart 
Of Capital World 

Thirty-seven junior and senior students 
in the Department of Economics and 
Business Administration took a field trip 
to New York City Thursday and Friday, 
April 27 and 28. 

The students, accompanied by Dr. C. 
P. Joseph Tom, chairman of the depart- 
ment, visted the Manufacturer's Hanover 
Trust Company, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, 
Penner and Smith on Thursday. 

On Friday, the group toured the Fed- 
eral Reserve Bank of New York and the 
New York Stock Exchange. 

The trip, designed to give students a 
first-hand view of the mechanics of their 
chocen field, was sponsored by the Peo- 
Ples National Bank of Lebanon.

filthy, dirty pots and pans. There's noth- 
ing glamorous about a pot room." 

What Spence wanted caused a bit of 
a flap in the paper industry. 

"I wanted disposable, non-floppy plates 
that conformed to the design and shape 
of china. I wanted to get away from the 
nine inch serving plate onto which every- 
thing is dumped. I wanted scalloped 
edges — scalloped edges, everyone thought 
I was mad!" 

The Applied and Research and Devel- 
opment Corporation, Chippewa Falls, 
New York, took the gamble. A styrofoam 
product was developed to his specifica- 
tions. Now food service managers across 
the country are considering following 
Spence's lead. 

Next, an aluminum company developed 
a large pan to Spence's requirements to 
hold the frozen foods and serve as oven- 

He then attacked plastic knives, forks 
and spoons that were "entirely unsuit- 

A manufacturer came up with a line 
of plastic tableware that is sturdy and 
convenient (the knives have a three inch 
cutting blade and a long handle). Each 
piece costs a cent 

Spence figures the university will save 
a lot on this item alone. "We used to 
lose 6,700 sets of silver every 28 days. 
We know we furnished every apartment 
within 20 miles of here. With plastic, be 
my guest, we can afford it." 
Next target was the food preparation. 
"Why not get rid of the drunken cook? 
How many times has he sprung his culi- 
nary surprises on innocent victims? How 
many times did he just fail to show up — 
actually we were probably better off on 
those times. Why not mass produce qual- 
ity food to our recipes?" 
What do the students think of this? 
If actions mean anything — they're sold 
on the idea. 

The "re-con" dining hall is jammed 
with students from all over the campus. 
(University students have a choice of five 
dining halls scattered about campus.) 

They like the food and Spence's "let 
'em eat what they want" policy. "I figure 
if they're old enough to die in Vietnam, 
they're old enough to decide what they 
want to eat. 

"If youH notice the beef stew youH 
see it has no potatoes, kids don't want 
potatoes in their stew." 

The day that Spence was interviewed 
by The News American the luncheon 
menu across the campus had two entree 
choices, egg salad sandwich and chicken 

At the "re-con" dining hall these items 
were there, but so were franks, hamburg- 
ers, omelettes, grilled cheese sandwiches

After thirteen years of work, Mrs.

"War Is Hell" 

by Howard Moffert 

Saigon (CPS) — Both sides in the Viet 
Nam war are using all the available power 
they can muster to gain support of the 
population. Yet, there is another dimen- 
sion to the conflict between the elites of 
the government and the Viet Cong, and it 
is best expressed in terms of their values. 

One side claims a sincere anti-colonial- 
ism refined by fire through twenty-one 
years of war. It emphasizes social justice 
and especially the abolition of privilege. 
It travels closer to the ground, and more 
often has succeeded in identifying itself 
with the simple virtues and viewpoints of 
the peasantry. 

Furthermore, it has often succeeded in 
identifying all civil authority, which the 
peasant tends to view as arbitrary and 
inimical to his interests, with the other 
elite (both sides try to do this). It stresses 
the necessity for social struggle, and to 
wage this struggle it has built up a system 
of authority which is unified and cen- 
tralized to the point of regimentation. 

Differences and Dissentions 

Discipline is strict, and apparently 
little deviation from the official point of 
view is tolerated lest the infra-structure's 
effectiveness be weakened. Personal free- 
dom and ambition seem to be subordin- 
ated (sometimes voluntarily, sometimes 
not) to the collective goal. 

The other elite claims nationalism, but 
has become increasingly reliant on for- 
eign arms and aid ot achieve it. It too 
speaks of social justice and the abolition 
of privilege, but it lays greater stress on 
the protection of personal freedoms, for- 
tunes and points of view. As a result, dif- 
ferences often become outright dis- 

This elite is anything but unified. It 
is riddled with factions competing for in- 

fluence across political, religious, regional 
and institutional lines. It has maintained 
a significant degree of personal and civil 
liberty at the expense of the continuation 
of privilege and even organized corrup- 

Yet this elite, heavily dependent on 
foreign aid because of its own factional- 
ism and widespread corruption, is unified 
in opposing the regimentation and loss 
of personal liberty imposed by the other 
eilte in the areas it controls. 

What is perhaps difficult for American 
intellectuals to understand is that, though 
they are often abused by those in power 
at any given time, the convictions of the 
second elite run as deep and sincere as 
those of the first. The issue is better ex- 
pressed by a leading Vietnamese intel- 
lectual, Ton That Thien, in a recent art- 
icle in the Asia Magazine: 

One may ask why the Vietnamese fight, 
and what has sustained them for so long. 
The answer can be summed up in two 
words: liberation and freedom. Those are 
the aims for which they have fought, suf- 
fered, and died, and for which, I think, 
they will continue to fight, suffer, and 
die. And they have found the strength for 
it in the belief that they fight for a right 
cause (in Vietnamese ghanh nghia). So 
long as they continue to believe that their 
cause is right, they will persist. And who 
can convince them that to fight, suffer, 
and die for a right cause is wrong? 

But the tragedy of Vietnam is that the 
Vietnamese are divided into those who 
believe in the primacy of liberation, and 
those who believe in the primacy of free- 
dom. The majority of the first are in the 
North, and the majority of the second are 
in the South. Neither the North's nor the 
South's government offers the Vietnamese 

people both liberation and freedom. Each 
offers the Vietnamese only half of what 
they want. 

This double half-offer, which gives the 
Vietnamese a sense of half-fulfillment 
and unfinished business, is the major 
cause of prolonged division and war, with 
all its terrible consequences. For not only 
is Viet Nam divided, but each Vietnamese 
is torn internally by violently conflicting 
desires. As a citizen, he aspires toward 
liberation, and as an individual he aspires 
toward freedom. He cannot give up any 
of those aspirations without feeling a 
deep sense of partial alienation. For a 
man is both citizen and individual, and 
without both liberation and freedom he is 
only half a man. 

It is against the above background that 
one can appreciate the cruel fate which 
has befallen the Vietnamese people — a 
victim of the mistakes of statesmen of 
the graet powers, as well as the follies of 
their own leaders. 

Two Wars 

Both the physical war and the psych- 
ological war are being fought here at sev- 
eral different levels. There is a struggle 
to build and destroy infrastructures in 
each of some 16,000 hamlets. There are 
squad and platoon-sized engagements be- 
tween local guerillas and government 
militia, called Popular Forces. There are 
terrorist bombings at luxury hotels and in 
peasant markets. 

The Viet Cong are trying to build up 
troop concentrations while avoiding pitch- 
ed battles in the rich Mekong Delta; 
government leaders, largely through the 
intermediate agency of U.S. Special 
Forces, are trying to win the loyalty of 
the Central Highland Montagnards, who 
are generally looked down upon by all 
Vietnamese, communist and non-com- 

South of the Demilitarized Zone, full- 
fledged conventional battles rage between 
battalions (roughly 1,000 men each) of 
American Marines and North Vietnamese 

regulars. "Pacification" cadres from one 
side or the other are at work in every 
one of South Viet Nam's 42 provinces. 

The War Spreads 

The struggle has now spilled well be- 
yond the borders of South Viet Nam and 
has become in effect a regional war. Anti- 
government activity is reported increas- 
ing in Laos, northeastern Thailand, and 
even Burma, while the Hanoi government 
claims North Viet Nam is about to be 

Finally, the international political im- 
plications for the rest of Southeast Asia — 
from Indonesia to East Pakistan — are 
enormous. And however Americans want 
to slice it, Southeast Asians see the two 
major protagonists — competing for power, 
influence, and the vindication of ideology 
— as the United States and China. 

This, then, is your simple war. 

It is true that American warplanes are 
bombing and burning and killing civilians, 
more than you will ever read about in the 
papers. It is also true that the Viet Cong 
disembowal good province chiefs, or bad 
ones, and they do run prison camps under 
conditions not so far removed from those 
of Dachau. The only thing these two 
statements prove is that war is hell, and 
modern guerilla war is worse than any 
other kind. 

What is going on here has two sides, 
in every usage of the word. It is not just 
a slaughter of particularly innocent, 
peace-loving villagers. Nor is it a par- 
ticularly democratic defense of freedom 
against terror and tyranny from without. 
It is total war.

M. P. Speaker Scores 
Race Bias In S. Africa 


CAPE TOWN, South Africa, (CPS) — 

An internationally noted member of the 
South African Parliament has urged stu- 
dents at the University of Cape Town 
(UCT) to struggle against the national 
policy of apartheid. 

Ht is up to you to direct your minds 
to a future of better human relations, 
despite what is happening in this country," 
Mrs. Helen Suzman, Progressive Party 
M.P. told 1,200 students. 

Speaking under the auspices of the 
Students Academic Freedom Committee 
on the anniversary of the United Nations 
Day for the Elimination of Racial Dis- 
crimination, Mrs. Suzman stated, "It is 
a sick obsession this country has with 
race and color, and I say this despite the 
howls I receive in Parliament." 

A Slow Move 

Mrs. Suzman said that the jig-saw 
puzzle of apartheid was taking place in 
South Africa as the world slowly but 
surely had opted to move away from dis- 
crimination based on race or color. 

Recent government action against cer- 
tain South African universities was not 
to be viewed as an isolated situation, 
Mrs. Suzman said. She said there were 
"ominous portents" in current debate on 
South African higher education. 
Carry on — or else 

"Meanwhile protests get fewer and the 
voices of protest get softer," the South 
African leader said. "Be on guard against 
this. Do not become conditioned to what 
is so glibly named the 'traditional South 
African way of life' ". 

She added that it was remarkable that 
so many South African students had ref- 
used to succumb to the doctrines of racial 
discrimination. Her message to students 
was to "carry on — if you do not, we will 
lose the very stuff of democracy in South

La Vie Interviews 
College President 

Dr. Allan W. Mund, Acting President 
of the College, was recently interviewed 
by La Vie. Dr. Mund, who is also serv- 
ing as chairman of the committee for the 
selection of a new president for LVC 
was asked how he felt the committee was 

Although he said that he could give 
no definite answer on this point, Dr. 
Mund did indicate that he felt the com- 
mittee was making reasonable progress 
in narrowing the field of those eligible 
for the post. 

When asked how he felt about taking 
on the position of acting president in 
addition to being the president of the 
board of trustees, Dr. Mund replied with 
a smile and said, "This has been a won- 
derful experience for me, and I will al- 
ways look back on this post as having 
been a most pleasurable one."

are filled with facts, figures, and oth-

CHINA vs. U.S . 

Conflict of Ideologies 

by Howard Moffett 

Saigon (CPS) — "I don't give a damn about the Vietnamese — we're 
fighting a war against China. Nobody worried about the Alsatians during 
the battle of Alsace-Lorraine." 

A prominent Washington columnist made the comment during a 
recent visit to Viet Nam. To many educated Americans the striking thing 
would be its crudity. The striking thing here is that many Vietnamese, 
deploring the sentiment and despising the speaker, would nevertheless 
accept it as an accurate appraisal of what is happening in and to their 

However Americans view the war in Viet Nam, many Southeast 
Asians see it primarily as a struggle between the U.S. and China for power, 
influence and the vindication of ideology. It is the tragic fate of the Viet- 
namese that they live in a rich and politically strategic border land between 
areas dominated by these two great powers. 

Indirect Contact 

To Americans, the conflict often seems fuzzy and far away. American 
interests in Southeast Asia are nebulously defined. Despite growing 
malaise, the war in tiny Viet Nam has touched the lives of most Americans 
only indirectly. 

Likewise, no one knows very much 
about the Chinese, and their role in 
Southeast Asia is often minimized. Amer- 
icans, impressed with their own strength 
and confused by Chinese counterclaims, 
conclude that the Chinese must realize 
they would be foolish to get into a fight 
with the United States. 

China vs. U.S. 

The picture looks quite different from 
here. Ask any Vietnamese who the domi- 
nant power in Southeast Asia is, and the 
answer would be My, the Americans. 
The other potential power in the area is 
just as obvious. China's shadow falls like 
a great weight on people living at the 
bottom of the continent, almost a phy- 
sical pressure. Skeptics might glance at 
a Vietnamese newspaper: the one I know 
best is printed in English, largely for the 
American reader — yet often China com- 
mands more front page space than any 
other nation, including the U.S. and Viet 

It seems China and America are always 
shouting at each other, but neither wants 
to understand what the other is wailing 
about. Americans talk in somber tones 
°f raising the price of aggression and 

buttressing democracy and freedom 
around the world. A shrill Chinese voice 
Protests that the great American reaction- 
ary, imperialist, bourgeois power is be- 
gging the revolutionary champion of the 
oppressed nations, China, and trying to 
stamp out a popular struggle against co- 
knialism by her ally, the People's Demo- 
nic Republic of Viet Nam. 

'That doesn't correspond to reality, 
We say, thinking of our suburban home, 
0u J country club and our kids. And, 
*ou don't understand history," say the 

Chinese, oblivious to what is happening 
in the outside world. 

Simple Power Struggle 
The issue between China and the Uni- 
ted States is confused because we still 
tend to reduce power struggles to their 
military dimensions; they are more dra- 
matic that way, and easier to understand. 
Look at any American commercial news- 
paper and compare the space given to

Prospective Frosh 
Visit LV Campus 

Freshman Orientation took place Sat- 
urday, May 20, on the Lebanon Valley 
campus for the Class of 1971. Approxi- 
mately two hundred attended. 

The day started out with a coffee hour 
followed by an opening session in the 
Chapel to introduce college personnel and 
to outline the total program. While the 
oncoming freshmen took a math test, their 
parents met with members of the ad- 

Next the freshmen attended a group 
session with their academic advisors as 
the parents joined with consultants on 
finance. After lunch the students regis- 
tered for next year, and the parents at- 
tended a discussion period with the stu- 
dent deans. During the day the freshmen 
had their pictures taken for ID cards to 
expedite registration in the fall. 

The freshmen and their parents were 
aided by members of SCA and the newly 
formed service sorority. 

Another Orientation Day will be held 
July 8, for transfer students and those 
freshmen who were unable to attend this 
Saturday's meeting. 

Government Heads 
Look To Next Year 

The newly elected heads of the three 
major student government associations on 
campus, Barbara Ankrum — President of 
Jiggerboard, James Newcomer — President 
of the Men's Senate, and Richard Will- 
iams — President of the Faculty-Student 
Council were asked after installation on 
Tuesday what they felt were the biggest 
problems facing their respective organiza- 
tions and what they hoped to accomplish 
during the 1967-1968 school year. Their 
answers to these questions appear below. 

James Newcomer: The Senate's func- 
tion is to promote among the men on 
campus the order which allows for high 
academic achievement and maximum 
social growth. I don't foresee a big prob- 
lem, but rather a large responsibility. 

Those Senate rules which have become 
obsolete by no longer fulfilling the Sen- 
ate's function will be discarded. But those 
that remain on the books will be enforced. 

Barbara Ankrum: The biggest problem 
that Jiggerboard will be facing next year 
is that of getting the resident women to 
accept their responsibility in our self- 
government. Too many times the women 
expect only the elected members of 
Jiggerboard and the hall presidents to en- 
force the rules. It is a shared responsi- 
bility between both Jiggerboard and the 
resident women. 

The existing policies for women will 
remain the same with the exception of 
the change in permissions and a few 
minor rule changes. I would like to see 
Jiggerboard overcome the gap that exists 
between its members and the resident 
women. I feel that the resident women 
often forget that they elected their Jigger- 
board representatives. Jiggerboard is 
thought of by many as only a punishing 
agent. We, as a group, hope to show the 
women that it also works for their 

Richard Williams: Achieving its pur- 
pose as a Faculty-Student organization is 
the main problem facing the F.S.C. This 
purpose, as presented in its constitution, 
is to develop "understanding and co- 
operation" between students and faculty 
at Lebanon Valley. This has no easy 
solution, however, better communication 
between the Council and the student body 
would help to alleviate this problem. If 
all Council members would report reg- 
ularly to their respective organizations, 
and if Council minutes were available for 
all interested students and faculty, the 
problem would be half-solved. 

Senior Recital Features 
Tuba, Trumpet Players 

Last night, in Engle Hall, at 8 p.m. two 
students of Dr. James Thurmond pre- 
isented their senior recitals. Performing 
i were Robert Goodling, tubaist, and Dan- 
iel Maurer, trumpeter. 

Accompanied by Jean Slade, Goodling 
opened the program with Bach's "Gigue 
and Allemande," followed by "Bacarolle 
et Chanson Bachique," by Semlet-Collery. 

Maurer's first number was "Concerto 
for Trumpet," the Allegro con spir- 
ito, Andante, and Rondo movements, by 

Next Goodling took the stage in 
presenting "Sonata for Tuba," the Alle- 
gro pesante, Allegro assai, and Moderato; 
scherzando; and lento movements, by 

Ending the recital was Maurer with 
"Caprice," by Bozza, and Lo Presti's 
"Suite for Five Trumpets," the Intrada, 
Chorale, and Finale movements. He was 
accompanied on all his numbers by 
William Stine, assisted by Doug Wine-

Results Appear In 
"Year of The Poll" 

by Paul Pickard 

If the Oriental peoples of this planet can have their Year of the Drag- 
on, Year of the Horse, and so on, it seems only fair that we too in the West 
should be able to call the years of our lives by something other than unex- 
citing mathematical digits. 

Instead of this year just being called "1967," it would seem appro- 
priate, at least for the students and faculty here, to call this the "Year of 
the Poll." 

There have been been many polls this year as departments vied with 
each other for submerging the campus under the greatest amount of paper. 
Some of these polls have been interesting, others have been valuable. It 
seems that one always suffered at the 
expense of the other. But the poll that 
captured both of the latter qualities was 
compiled by the students in Political Sci- 
ence 33, Public Opinion. 

These students set out to test both 
student and faculty opinion on issues of 
international, national, and local im- 
portance. The preliminary results just 
released to La Vie point to some rather 
interesting differences and similarities of 
opinion between students and faculty. 

Although these are only preliminary 
results, the trends seem to be significant 
in many cases. For instance, 94% of the 
students and 70% of the faculty are less 
than pleased with the present chapel 
policy. In another area, 69% of the stu- 
dents and 53.7% of the faculty felt that 
the class-cut policy should be in the 
hands of the individual instructor. 

Skipping around a little more, it seems 
from the available tabulations that 82% 
of the students and 66% of the faculty 
would like to see some controversial 
speakers on campus. Of course, we all 
have our differences. While 67.3% of 
the students wanted national fraternities, 
53.5% of the faculty disagreed. Again, 
82.2% of the students were in favor of 
continuing football here, but only 46.4% 
of the faculty were as enthusiastic. The 
White Hats are loved by 73.2% of the 
students, but only 36.5% of the faculty 
feel the same. 

Deep in their hearts, 54% of the fac- 
ulty feel that the Supreme Court should 
not be quite so liberal with criminals, 
while only 41% of the students are as 
firmly convinced. According to one stu- 
dent, President Johnson is "The most 
crucial problem facing the world today." 

Somewhat in line with this idea is the 
trend that 38% of the students believe 
that we are in Vietnam either because of 
bungling or an attempt to build an Amer-

La Vie Collegienne, Monday, May 22, 1967 


Ever since the plans for the Chapel were first drawn up, many criti- 
cisms have been brought up about its construction. A rather large group of 
both students and faculty were opposed to its construction, though for sep- 
arate reasons. Yet, the building was started and completed. 

A recurring student complaint has been that the Chapel was built 
instead of the Student Union building. These people would have us believe 
that the college had a choice between the two and chose the Chapel. The 
details concerning the problems of constructing a Student Union building 
have been presented many times before, and there is not room here to dis- 
cuss why the building could not be constructed. 

Suffice it to say that the Administration was faced with no such 
choice in being able to select either the Student Union building or the 

This past Saturday night some felt that the best way to express their 
discontent was to desecrate the Chapel. Someone threw some purple liquid 
on the white strip directly above the chaplain's office, and the stain is 
still there. 

It is difficult to believe that anyone could be so juvenile or malicious. 
But the evidence is on the Chapel in purple. Perhaps the stain can be re- 
moved. That will make us all feel better because we won't have to look at 
it anymore. Perhaps it can not be removed. 

As students we should all be ashamed that something of this nature 
has been allowed to take place here. There is no room in any civilized 
community for the rude rabble responsible for this wanton act of destruc- 
tion. For it is destruction not only of the appearance of a church, 
but also the destruction of our reputation as responsible members of this 
campus community. 

Until the perpetrators of this act are brought before the proper 
school authorities, we shall all bear the blame for what happened. 

Since we are all firm believers in the dictum: "See no evil, hear no 
evil, speak no evil," it is doubtful that the person responsible will ever 
be punished for what he did. 

It seems mat the best way to get along in (this world is to keep from 
getting involved, that way you don't lose any friends. But are those friends 
really worth having? — P.P.

"Clear Day" Musical 
Hailed As Best Ever 

by Bobbie Gable 

Last weekend Wig and Buckle presented their best performance in 
the four years that I've been here. In "On a Clear Day You Can See For- 
ever," the first musical ever staged by this organization, the people involv- 
ed in the production demonstrated a variety of talents. 

Under the very capable direction of Larry Bachtell, the cast and crew 
functioned smoothly and effectively. Especially outstanding were the clev- 
erly designed sets — Mr. Bachtell's idea. Engle Hall, with all its faults, 
certainly did not seem like Engle Hall, but was appropriately (and effi- 
ciently, thanks to the stage crew) transformed from office, to rooftop, 
to 1794. 

<c#t\V\m Hl£ FINAL'S IN TME FOfc <-H3APUATION," 

Bill Miller, musical director, did a fine 
job with orchestration. The music blended 
especially well with the dance routines. 
And the dancers, though not quite pro- 
fessional, did an almost professional job. 
Much of the credit here should go to 
Linda Sentman, choreographer, for the 
many hours it must have taken to over- 
come the limitations of Engle's stage and 
arrange a series of delightful rountines. 

The impossibility of choosing one or 
two cast members as standing out above 
the rest should be apparent to those who 
attended. Of course, the two lead roles 
must be mentioned . 

Pixie Hunsicker has musical comedy 
written all over the many faces used in 
her two roles. The plight of Daisy came 
through delightfully in both song and ex- 

Max Hunsicker, a freshman cast as Dr. 
Mark Bruckner, has a fine, strong voice 
and musically could not have easily been 
equalled. His acting was a bit weak. He 
seemed hesitant and unsure of his role, 
but with a little polish and a little more 
confidence he should find himself in de- 
mand for many more LVC musicals. 

The supporting cast did a fine job both 
dramatically and musically. Occasionally 
it was difficult to hear the performers, 
especially in some of the musical num- 

The highest tribute was paid to this 
musical by the large number of students 
who simply said, "We want to see it 
again. It was fabulous." 


End the Draft 

The time has come to end the military 

That bald declaration will startle many. 
But when all the facts are in, it is difficult 
to avoid the conclusion that America is 
overdue in bringing to an end this dras- 
tic invasion of the lives and liberties of 
her young men. 

Thanks no doubt to the heightened 
awareness of America's young people, 
whose lives the draft so serious affects, 
many in Congress are now for the first 
time rethinking the premises upon which 
the draft is supposedly based. An in- 
creasing number of them are finding it 
sadly out of step with both our Nation's 

traditions and with its military manpower 

We must never allow ourselves to for- 
get that however pressing the circum- 
stances, the draft is involuntary servitude. 
It is legitimate and constitutional when 
Congress, exercising its power to raise 
and support armies, has no reasonable 
alternative. But conscription must always 
be the last desperate resort for meeting 
military manpower needs, not the cheap 
and easy expedient. 

There is no numerical shortage of man- 
power for filling military ranks. Each 
year nearly four times as many men as 
the miliatry needs enter the draft age 
pool. With more realistic service qualifi 
catoins and sharply increased wages and 
fringe benefits, and with an enhanced 
status for military careers, we can attract 
the 500,000 men we need each year, even 
at Viet Nam buildup levels. 

All we have to do is to make up our 
minds that we are going to stop exchang- 
ing prceious liberties for false economy — 
false because, when the total economic 
costs of the draft system are taken into 
account, including civilian wages fore- 
gone by draftees, we may well be saving 
nothing at all. And this calculation fails 
to take into account the qualitative value 
of skilled career specialists serving in cru- 
cial military positions now filled by re- 
luctant draftees. 

How do we get from the present draft 
to the volunteer army? 

First, we must unequivocally reaffirm 
our commitment to thegoal of voluntary 
armed forces. The draft should be ex- 
tended for one or at the most two years. 
During that time the Defense Depart- 
ment should embark on a program de- 
signed to make the drfat increasingly un- 
necessary. A special joint committee of 
Congress should be set up to make recom- 
mendations or a phasing out of the draft, 
and to maintain a continual review of 
the Defense Department's, progress to- 
ward that goal. And military pay and 
fringe benefits should be raised substan- 
tially, starting now. 

It is time we made the firm decision 
to put an end to inequity, put an end to 
inefficiency, and to regain for our young 
people the liberties the draft has taken 
from them.

Letters To The Editor 

To the Editor: 

I have recently witnessed something 
which has put me through a great deal of 
mental anguish. That something is cheat- 
ing on examinations, and the anguish 
was of the nature of an internal struggle 
of whether or not to turn in the names 
of those persons I had observed. On the 
one hand I thought of the damage these 
persons were doing to "the curve," the 
teacher's relative opinion of me, and (as 
our recent Chapel speaker so aptly put 
it) the "integrity" of the place I would 
call my alma mater. And on the other 
hand, I felt that it would be rather low of 
me to go slinking to the dean without 
being able to face the person I would be 

Therefore, I hereby declare myself 
unalterably opposed to cheating on exam- 
inations. I vow that I will turn in any- 
one I observe doing this, and call him a 
cheater to his face in front of the ap- 
propriate professor, Dean Marquette, or 
Dean Ehrhart if necessary. This means 
that I will be living in a glass house and 
I willingly invite anyone to report me 
without the warning I am now issuing. I 
also challenge others who hate this dis- 
ease as much as I do to commit them- 
selves and help me try to fight the prob- 
lem of cheating. Can your pride in your 
school and in yourself let you sit there 
and watch people cheat? Mine no longer

Intramural Scene 

With the finals of the intramural pro- 
gram in sight, the probable winner of 
the supremacy Trophy will be the Knights 
of the Valley. Having lost the race last 
year by point, the Knights have come 
back this year to dominate the scene and 
by the looks of the standings to capture 
the trophy. 

Up to this point 13 intramural sports 
have been completed and the knights have 
won football, ping pong, volleyball, bad- 
minton, handball, weightlifting, golf, and 
track. Kalo has won cross-country, bowl- 
ing and basketball. Philo has won wrest- 
ling, and the Residents have won swim- 
ming. Squash, softball, tennis and horse- 
shoes will be completed by the end of 
the week. 

The last sport to be completed was 
track which was run in the rain last, 
Thursday. The Knights came out on top 
followed by Frosh B, Residents, Kalo, 
Philo, Frosh A. With the 13 sports com- 
pleted the standings are as follows: 

Knights — 101 points 
Residents — 77 points 
Kalo — 76 points 
Philo — 46 points 
Frosh B — 23 points 
Frosh A — 20 points 
Sinfonia — 19 points 

The supremacy trophy along with the 
individual trophies will be handed out at 
the All Sports . Banquet Saturday night. 
Coach Darlington was in charge of or- 
ganizing the intramural program. 

Valley Loses To F&M 
In Final Track Meet 

Since the last issue of La Vie, the 
LVC cindermen have been involved in 
only one meet. The meet was held Tues- 
day, May 9, against Franklin and Mar- 
shall at the home track. Valley lost the 
tough contest 82 to 57. 

Williams led the team in individual 
scoring by capturing two firsts in the 
mile and two mile with times of 4:39.8 
and 10:29.5, respectively. 

Jack Kauffman added eight more points 
by capturing a first in the 220-yard dash 
and a second in the 100-yard dash in 
times of 23:0 and 10:5, respectively. 
Mike Kamuyu added eight points to Val- 
ley's score by capturing three second 
places. These seconds were in the high 
jump with a leap of 5' 10", in the triple 
jump with a combined yardage of 43'2'\ 
and in the broad jump with a jump of 
21 '4". Ken Bunting tied Kamuyu for sec- 
ond in the high jump. Glenn Horst picked 
up another first in the pole vault with a 
vault of twelve feet. Bob Greiner also 
took a first in the javelin with a throw of 
1807^" while Ken Baker added a third. 
Scott Baldwin rounded out the scoring in 
the field events by capturing a third in 
the discus. Kent Willauer ran the 880- 

Lacrosse Season Ends 
As LV Beats Dickinson 

The Lebanon Valley College stickmen 
have completed their second lacrosse sea- 
son with a 6-2 record. In addition, the 
team posted a 5-1 record in the M.A.C.'s, 
which won them a second place berth in 
the conference. 

The lacrosse team started out its season 
with a 4-2 victory over Lafayette. The 
next game was with Villanova which the 
Dutchmen lost 8-10. The third encounter 
was with Delaware, which also went 
against Valley 5-8. In the fourth game, 
the stickmen beat the Mules from Muh- 
lenberg 11-3. The fifth game, against 
F&M, Valley won 7-1. In the return 
match with Muhlenberg, Valley again 
beat their opponents 11-3. In the seventh 
game, the LV boys beat Bucknell by a 
score of 7-6 in a close contest. The last 
game of the season, against a strong 
Dickinson team, was a tight game all the 
way, with the Valley finally winning 8-7. 

Overall, the LV stickmen outscored 
their opponents 61-40. The coaches say 
that the strategy of the close defense has 
been much better, as can be seen in the 
low scoring of the opponents. The close 
attack has also been greatly improved, 
with over half of the team scoring coming 
from that unit. 

The scoring for individuals went as 
follows: J. Stauffer, 15 goals; J. Evans, 
14; P. Brennan, 10; M. Hollen, 6; G. 
Gunther, 5; T. DeMarco, 3; D. Misal, 2; 
J. Mowrer, 2; P. Rondeau, 2; B. Furber, 
l;and G. Shaffer, 1. 

The stickmen will lose only one man, 
senior Joe Mowrer; so there will be sev- 
eral experienced underclassmen returning 
to play next season. 

yard run in a time of 2:04.0 while Dan 
Womer took third. In the 120 high hur- 
dles Bruce Welsh took second and John 
McClary picked up third. Tom Micka 
also scored in the contest by taking sec- 
ond in the 440 intermediate hurdles and 
third in the 440-yard dash. Larry Painter 
completed the scoring by capturing third 
in the 440-yard dash. 

Lebanon Valley's meet with Ursinus 
was cancelled because of rain and will 
not be played at all this year. On May 
12-13, seven of the cindermen from the 
Valley team took part in the MASCAC 
at Delaware. Valley concluded the season 
with a record of 6-7. 

Four LV Golfers 
Compete In MAC's 

The golf team concluded its season at 
Dickinson College May 8, with a 15Vi to 
2V2 loss, and finished with a two and 
ten record. 

The last match was typical of the en- 
tire season. It always seemed that the 
opponents shot their best against LVC. 
Dickinson's first four men had scores of 
73, 72, 76 and 77, better than their nor- 
mal scores. In the match with Juniata 
earlier in the season, Valley's opponents 
were all under 80. 

The linksmen did manage to play two 
teams on normal days, defeating PMC 
and Muhlenberg by identical 10-8 scores. 
The other scores were Moravian 10 — 
LVC 8; Albright 1 1 Vz — LVC 6Vi; Juni- 
ata 16— LVC 2; Western Maryland lOVi 
—LVC IVi; Elizabethtown 10— LVC 8; 
Franklin and Marshall \2Vi — LVC 5Vi; 
Lycoming 15— LVC 3; Drexel 14— LVC 
4; and Johns Hopkins 1 1 Vz — LVC 6V4. 

At the MAC Championships, held at 
Juniata, Captain Walt Smith was low for 
the four team members competing, fol- 
lowed by Terry Light, Bill Cadmus, and 
Sam Willman. 

Smith and Cadmus had the best match 
records of 5-7, followed closely by Jon 
Hofmann with a 4-6-2 record. Light, 4-8; 
Bromley Billmeyer, 3-9; and Willman, 
0-12, round out the starting six. 

Cadmus was the leading scorer for the 
year with 17Vi points out of a possible 
36. In a tie for second position were 
Smith and Hofmann with 16, followed 
by Light with lWz, Billmeyer with 10, 
and Willman with 2Yz . 

Smith had the best average per round 
for the matches. This was 79.1. The 
others, in order of position played, were 
Light, 81.7; Cadmus, 82.7, Hofmann, 
85.9; Billmeyer, 89.6; and Willman, 92.3. 
Overall the team averaged 85.2 for their 

Some of the scores worthy of recog- 
nition this year include: Smith's 76 
against Dickinson; his 77 against Juniata; 
his 79 against Moravian, Albright, F&M, 
and Lycoming; Cadmus' 77 against 
Western Maryland and E-town; his 79 
against Dickinson; and Light's 77 against 
Drexel and PMC.

From the Dean of the College: 

Due to early beginning of work on 
the rebuilding of stairwells in the Ad-

to schedule final examinations out of 
this building. 

Students are asked to check the va-

Dutch Flier 

by Greg Myers 

This spring Lebanon Valley has been involved in three inter-scholas- 
tic sports: lacrosse, track, and golf. Best of all, Valley has been at least 
fairly successful in all three sports. 

The lacrosse team, which was recently introduced, has had a very 
successful season. With the victory over Dickinson, Lebanon Valley was 
assured of a tie for second place in the Middle Atlantic Conference 
standings. The team has been led by the scoring of Pete Brennan, Jerry 
Stauffer, and Jim Evans. The Valley stickmen have won victories over 
Lafayette, 4-2, Muhlenberg 11-3, F&M 7-1, Bucknell 7-6, and Dickinson 
8-7. Their losses have been to Villanova, 10-8, and Delaware 9-5. 
Through the guidance of coaches William and Robert McHenry and co- 
captains Charles Mowrer and Gary Gunther, and the scoring of Evans, 
Brennan, and Stauffer, Valley can consider itself as having had a most 
successful season. Maybe next year the Dutchmen will finish in first place. 

The track team this spring has earned a 6-7 record. The team was 
severely hampered by injuries late in the season, and this contributed to 
the loss of five out of their last six meets. This, in turn, left Valley with a 
sad .500 mark. However, there were some very impressive wins for the 
Dutchmen. Dick Williams had an excellent year by capturing many first 
places in the mile and two-mile events. Bob Greiner was the freshman star 
by capturing many firsts in the javelin event. Greiner had opened the 
season with a throw of 194 feet. 

Glenn Horst continued to amaze the fans with his supreme thrusts on 
the pole vault events. However, we cannot forget the running of Jack 
Kauffman, the jumping of Mike Kamuyu, the running and throwing of 
Larry Painter, and another fine runner, Kent Willauer. With many of 
the team members expected back, and the addition of a new freshman 
group, Valley can surely improve on its mark next season. 

The golf team has not had a very successful spring season, as they 
lost all but two of their matches. However, many of the losses were by 
some very close scores. The team was coached by Mr. Jerry Petrofes and 
captained by senior Walter Smith. Most of the LVC golfers will be back 
again next year and will be supplemented by some new hopefuls trying 
to make the team. The golf team should be able to improve its record 
next season.

military and political developments in the 
Viet Nam war. 

Thus the conflict between China and 
the U.S. would be much clearer if both 
sides were actually fighting for a terri- 
torial conquest of Viet Nam. But this 
is ruled out, so a typical line of reason- 
ing goes, by the fact that neither power 
could afford it — America because of her 
scruples and China because of her in- 
ternal problems. So the conflict stays 

But to put the issue in these terms is 
to take it back to the nineteenth century. 
Today's power struggles, partly because of 
the threat of nuclear war, are more in- 
direct and not nearly so crude. In fact 
the Viet Nam war is one of the most 
sophisticated in modern history.

SAI Presents Program 
For Local Institutions 

Delta Alpha Chapter of Sigma Alpha 
Iota has been conducting a series of mu- 
sical programs that have been presented 
at two institutions. Under the coordina- 
tion of Linda Rothermel, the patients at 
Wernersville State Hospital and Phil- 
haven, near Mt. Gretna, have been enter- 
tained and have taken part in musical 
games conducted by the members of 
Delta Alpha Chapter. 

SAI and Sinfonia have chosen the mu- 
sical "110 in the Shade" to be presented 
next December 8 and 9. The show will 
be under the direction of Gary Miller 
with Tom Hostetter as assistant director 
and Mike Campbell as musical director. 

On May 20, SAI and Sinfonia will

dents felt that social life on campus 
would be best improved by building a 
Student Union center. Answering other 
questions, 86% of the students were dis- 
satisfied with the present school calen- 
dar, and 88% were unreceptive to the 
idea of Saturday classes to improve class 

Again it must be stressed that the re- 
sults are, as yet, only fragmentary. When 
completed, the results will be published 
in La Vie. This information might be 
good bedtime reading for the policy- 
makers of the school.

Club's Investments 
Show Final Profit 

The president of the Investment Club, 
Kenneth Conrad, has announced that the 
Investment Club has closed its books for 
the year. 

The major purpose of the club is edu- 
cational. The club is intended to foster an 
interest in and an understanding of the 
stock market and the business world. 

The members have an opportunity to 
develop stock market techniques, to learn 
what investing is all about, and to have 
fun doing it. The club provides a valuable 
and profitable educational experience to 
those persons participating. 

The Investment Club ended the year 
with a profit of $4.58 per member, en- 
ough to make a sizeable down payment 
on textbooks or supplies. The book value 
per member was $44.58, representing an 
11.5% return on the original investment 
of $40 per member. This is the second 
consecutive year that the Investment Club 
has shown a profit. 

The accompanying statement of the 
year's operations shows the various stocks 
that the club bought and sold and the 
profit or loss derived from each stock. 
Note that the stocks the club bought 
tended to be volatile ones. Such stocks 
afforded the members the chance to 
watch these stocks move. The stocks were 
also picked because they were deemed to 
be the ones with the best chance for 
short-term appreciation. 

The thirteen members of the club this 
year are K. Conrad, president, C. Heiz- 
mann, secretary-treasurer, J. Mann, vice- 
president and FSC representative, P. 
Foutz, L. Moss, A. Steffy, M. Cupp, K. 
Thomas, R. Buek, P. Cormany, G. Clau- 
ser, Dr. Tom and Dr. Riley. 

On May 11, elections were held and 
Paul Foutz was elected as interim presi- 
dent until next Fall. He will be re- 
sponsible for organizing the club in the 

The only requirement for membership 
is that one must be taking or have taken 
Economics 20 or 23. All those interested 
are cordially invited to attend the or- 
ganizational meetings next September. 

Dr. Riley served as advisor and coun- 
selor to the club. He gave generously of 
the knowledge and materials at his dis- 
posal, which contributed to the successful 
operation of the Investment Club. 

Childhood Ed Club 
Holds Installation 

The Childhood Education Club install- 
ed the following officers, May 11, in the

rials Library: president, Lynn Garrett; 
vice president, Rosemary McCleaf; secre-
